Comedy was never given that much importance but today there is no big film that does not come on this stage for promotion. For this, I would like to congratulate Kapil Bhai.”
Ace comedian Zakir Khan will further go on to spill some beans about his start of the journey in comedy, he shares, “During my childhood, we used to get CDs of Raju bhai, Johnny bhai and other comedians and I used to love watching them. Then during my school days, Laughter Challenge started and whenever anyone would try to be funny my friends would pull his/her leg asking them to try the show as a joke. I would religiously watch that show and imagine how it would feel to perform like the comedians on the show. Watching the show made me think of it as a cakewalk, but later when I tried for real I understood how hard it is.”
Zakir will even talk about the challenges of being a stand-up comedian, he adds, “When I went on the stage to perform for the first time, I was removed from the stage within 2 mins (laughs). In front of your friends and family, you might be funny because they know the context of your joke and could relate to it, but when it comes to a completely unknown audience, it is a huge task to narrate a story and make them laugh and only a true comedian can do that.”
