A JOKE A DAY KEEPS THE DOCTOR AWAY! THAT WAS THE MANTRA AT 91.9 FRIENDS FM COMEDY SHOW, WITH T2

Funnyman Nishant Tanwar (right) geared up for his gig at 91.9 Friends FM Live Stand-up Comedy powered by Balaram’s in association with t2, held at Vidya Mandir recently, with some chai cheers with moderator Vikram Poddar. “The Calcutta crowd is intelligent and they get the references. They’re at par with Mumbai and Delhi. Hopefully some of them had seen my videos, so they were not surprised and shocked,” smiled Nishant. “The event was amazing. For the first time I laughed so much in my life and everyone enjoyed,” said Jimmy Tangree of 91.9 Friends FM.
Aakash Gupta got the audience ROFL-ing with his jokes about getting bullied in school and having dogs as pets! “I performed my normal stand-up routine which I do in all the cities. I am very new to Calcutta comedy and was really hopeful and excited about the show,” he said.
Anjaney Dhancholia and his friends Rathri Ghosh (centre) and Preksha Baid had come in a big group with other friends and lapped up the evening of big laughs. “Such events should happen more often. Anyone could do with a good three hours of laughter after a long, stressful week at work,” said Anjaney, an event manager.
Nishi Agarwal (right) and her friend Shraddha Agarwal laughed throughout the show. “We enjoyed so much! All of the jokes were so funny. I loved the jokes about trains and airplanes by Nishant Tanwar,” said Nishi, a student at iNIFD.
Ketan Bengani LOL’d with friend Joyita Ghosh. “The show was really awesome. Nishant killed it with his jokes and so did Aakash. The show really had me laughing,” said Ketan, a student of The Bhawanipur Education Society College.

FLURYS 2.0 

The second stand-alone outlet of Flurys (top left), a 400sq ft, 12-seater space, has recently opened at Upohar, The Condoville, in Chak Garia. A part of the breakfast menu and a leaner version of the main menu from the Park Street outlet is available here along with signature pastries and confectionery. “We are once again venturing into the stand-alone restaurant format for Flurys. In fact, very soon we plan to come up with a bigger outlet in Alipore. The prices here are comparatively lower than that of the Park Street outlet,” said Samit Ghosh, associate director, Flurys. The English Breakfast includes two rashers of crispy bacon, two grilled chicken sausages, two fried eggs, one grilled tomato, two hash browns, baked beans with toast and butter, along with a choice of juice or coffee for Rs 450.
