What's your general prep time?
Well, in Comicstaan it was different because we had a week to try things and it was a platform with comedians looking for the next big comedian. In my mind, this was a platform that’s going to stay for a while so I had to do some of the best jokes that I had created over time without saving them for something in the future. Some of the jokes that I have done in Comicstaan were 2 to 3 years old. When the chance came, I performed them with the wider audience. The joke about Hiphop and Bharatnatyam is very crazy and I cannot write that in a week, it happened over a while. This joke for me worked every time and so I used it back in the right platform. To perform outside it takes me more than a year to make one particular act from start to end as it keeps changing. I will come up with an idea and something sticks, some bits I add or delete in between. So by the time I am done, it takes me 1 to 2 years to make an act of 10 mins by constantly updating them, changing, adding to make it close to perfect.
