Hum Tak Pahucho Bhai by Pratyush Chaubey: Stand-up Review
Comedian: Pratyush Chaubey.
Channel: Pratyush Chaubey (YouTube).
Release Date: 4th January 2019.
“Ma’am keh rahi hai itna kharab jaa rha hai (exam), beech class me hi faasi laga loge tum.”
- Pratyush Chaubey humorously captures viewers’ attention by talking about comedy as a career, our perception about English, Bollywood vs. Hollywood and feminism.
- You might have heard that comedians take their insecurities or bad/awkward experiences and turn them into comedy. Chaubey ji takes our weird views of Uttar Pradesh (UP), its people and their accents and what not, to deliver a punch in a totally amusing way. It’s an art to touch a nerve and be politically correct, while also being funny.
- There’s this small space between the transition from one topic to other where Pratyush takes this pause, all straight-faced, and then the next moment launches into the comic artist. It fascinatingly makes the scripted piece realistic and that much more relatable.
The Final Verdict:
An entertaining, light comedy with a subtle undertone of realism, it’s definitely worth a watch.
