KALKUTTA KOMEDIANS FEATURING DANIEL FERNANDES


                                  KALKUTTA KOMEDIANS 

                                                         FEATURING

                                                DANIEL FERNANDES


      


KALKUTTA KOMEDIANS was started in late 2012 by Raouf Gangjee. It was a little difficult, considering there were no stand-up comedians in the city at the time. The first open mic, to discover new talent was held on November 10,2012. Within about a year stand-up comedians were standing up, nay springing up everywhere and there is no shortage of them now. The day may even come when the city's politicians acquire a sense of humor and become intentionally rather than unintentionally funny. 


Last Sunday dated 2nd July,2017 people came in hundreds to Vidya Mandir to witness the show put up by the comedians.
The audience came to witness some of the renowned stand up comedians namely: Daniel Fernandez, Gaurav Gupta, Sreyo Mukherjee, Srini vas, Surjit Singh, and Varun Luthra.






It was Daniel Fernandez who played the role of being the show topper. His great sense of humor and ever charming interaction with the crowd was an icing on the cake. The crowd loved the show put up by the comedians.
The show ended with the audience coming up to the centre stage to click a selfie with their favourite comedians.
The evening was well spent for every single comedy enthusiast.

What Daniel Fernandes's Shadows Is All About

Shadows: A Revelatory Special

I walked into Terna Auditorium on Sunday Night expecting a special set by a comedian I had seen perform live on a previous occasion and had seen videos of on YouTube. Daniel Fernandes went above and beyond that. At the outset he cautions the audience, that his self admittedly social commentary centred style of humour that has gained an instant association with him would not be a feature tonight.
His piece is a reflective one, touching upon self-doubt, his journey of self-discovery, his moment of truth and his foray into comedy. He discusses at length the various paradigms and notions of success that pervade society without sounding preachy. And how while non-conformity can be a lonely place, it isn’t the worst.
Fernandes’ takes on the mantle of a voice in our head and says everything that naturally occurs to us but social conditioning prevents us from expressing vocally.   Through an anecdotal and a canonical sense of humour, he narrates his evolving len…
