Last year on 18th November, 2012 I was invited to the Black Dog Comedy show at Hotel Sheraton, Bangalore. It was sponsored by Black Dog. All I knew it was some standup comedy show. I had never seen standup comedy before and I had no more knowledge of what happens there apart from what Russel Peter does! But after sitting through those hilarious 2 hours, I can tell you that Black Dog comedy evenings are raw strings of humor which tickles your funny bones.
Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot.

The venue the only Sheraton hotel in Bangalore and exclusively located inside Brigade Gateway on Dr. Rajkumar road, Rajajinagar. The show took place at the Bar which was optimally set with light and background. The show featured three comedians – Praveen Kumar, Sandeep Rao and Sanjay Manaktala. With drinks, crispy and peppy starters side by and witty humor head on it was a laugh riot. It was not superficial, they cracked about everyday life, things which we all can relate to. As drinks are for adults above 18 years of age, these Black Dog Comedy shows will also be better enjoyed by adults.
Comedy is defiance. It’s a snort of contempt in the face of fear and anxiety. And it’s the laughter that allows hope to creep back on the inhale.
