Podcast: What Have Comedians Kunaal Roy Kapur And Anuvab Pal Been Up To This Week


1. Fight or flight?

A man taking part in a swimming competition punches a shark to save his life. Kunaal, in Mumbai, experiences something similar while standing in line to buy tickets for Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Will he employ the same tactic as the swimmer?

2. Honest advertising

A British lady attempts to sell her handbag, calling it "horrible" and saying that it looks like "cr*p". And, it received bids of up to £600. This, Anuvab believes, revolutionises advertising. It's time brands become honest about the goods they're selling.

3. Corporate money in sports

After cricket, it's kabaddi that has caught the attention of businessmen, with several of them buying teams in the World Kabaddi League. What's next? Kunaal thinks that an International Antakshari League is not too far.

4. Hypochondriac Bengalis

Anuvab has just come back from Kolkata and doesn't understand why ailments and medical conditions seem to be the talk of the town. What is it with Bengalis and their unhealthy obsession of talking about health?

5. Unexciting IPL

Kunaal believes that the IPL has reached a point where the unending 4s and 6s have made a dot ball the most exciting part of a cricket match. And, in an obligatory mention: Corruption in the league - is it truly the evil that it's made out to be? Would the IPL be half as exciting if it was free of corruption?
