Stand-up Comedy with Shankar Chugani

Malhahahar!!! Are you ready for some laughter? For the first time, we bring you stand-up comedy at Koota. We are delighted to bring you one of Bangalore’s finest comedians to kickstart this series and we have more in store for you. Hosted by our very own Sandeep Nanu, you will also get to see our fellow resident, Brikesh Singh open for Shankar Chugani.

Shankar Chugani is a stand-up comic based in Bangalore. He has been performing across the country for the last 5 years. You may have seen him on Amazon Prime’s Comicstaan season 1. As a kid, Shankar Chugani was distressingly short and easily intimidated. Now, he’s still short, but less easily intimidated, and busy making people laugh. Over the last 5 years, Shankar’s high-energy performances have entertained people across the country – from small open mics to massive audiences in Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, and Pune. Koota is delighted to bring him this August for some rib-tickling fun.

Brikesh (auto-correct wanted this to be changed to British) is a 42-year-old environmentalist born and raised in Bombay, he started moonlighting as a comic in 2017 after he made the dreadful decision to shift to Delhi.

He jokes mostly about politics and is struggling to generate laughs compared to what political leaders are managing these days.

Sandeep Nanu is our resident bird photographer and a recent ethical snake rescuer. A believer in a perfect work-life balance (questionable considering very few at Malhar have seen him working), he can be found on the badminton court or entertaining kids with his card tricks when he is not working (read as always). He thinks he’s funny. Only time will tell.
