Sowpernika, a 24 year old chubster, loves to cook and bake and claims she cannot spell “Chiaroscuro” backwards and has tried it 128482 times! In this blog, she talks about the Open mics and the pub show she handles!




Scene 1:

Location: Ashvita Bistro, Alwarpet, Chennai

Day and Time: Thursdays, 7:30 PM

Cast: Café staff, funny local comics, not-so-funny local comics, 20-30 crowd members who will be a mixture of old grandparents of participants, grumpy friends, over enthu friends, a person who pretends he knows everything about the comedy fraternity and general opinionated folks.

Scene description: From a star comic bombing, to a café staff donning the comic hat, to an angry housewife venting, to a local boy killing, what not, this place has seen it all.

If you have still have not got it, I’m talking about Mic Testing, our open mic stand-up night! It’s been more than a year at Ashvita and this property has been a beautiful platform for anyone who has ever wanted to try stand-up.

And the happiness behind producing this? Is to witness the growth of a comic! In some cheap way, it makes you feel you feel content, a sense of belonging, like you were a part of bigger something.

 Scene 2:

Locations: Vapour, Bengaluru and Bay 146, Chennai

Day and Time: Sundays, 1 PM and 7:30 PM

Scene description: These 2 pub spaces have witnessed some brilliant stand-up specials in the past one year and have been one of our major strengths. Both these rooms are a favourite among the artists!

With all our new properties like New Material Nights, Comedy Killadees doing so well in Chennai, Bengaluru has been a lovely home to all the solo specials!

And if not for our A team, Raghav and Syama (Chennai) and Hari and Arshadh (Bengaluru), these properties would not be the same!

(Cheap plug-in alert!) So are you in Chennai or Bengaluru and thinking of ways to spend your Sunday? Come be at one of our shows, drink, eat, laugh and have a killer Sunday!WhatsApp Image 2017-08-16 at 2.56.43 PM
