Is it easy for standup comedians to make kids laugh? It’s tougher to make people laugh than cry. It’s even tougher to make kids laugh with usual stand-up comedy, realised Kanan Gill, Abish Mathew, Abhishek Upmanyu, Zakir Khan and Biswa Kalyan Rath. They are successful comedians who became popular with their style of comedy with the adult audience. Teach For India approached them to conduct a comedy class for 3rd graders and they got stumped!
This is Kanan trying to grab their attention
Abhishek and Abish laughing hysterically
Kanan trying to do what…?
Abish mimicking the little girl
And thus making her laugh
Yes, they were puzzled by those tiny tots and were at their wits end. Kanan Gill shared his childhood memory and said that Susu, Potty and someone falling down made him laugh as a kid. He used the same tact with the children. Watch for yourself.
Don’t forget to share this post and watch till the end because Biswa Kalyan Rath has a very important message for you all. It’s for those kids and every other in this world.
