Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

Of late, we've been seeing a rise in the stand up comedians, musicians and other artistes who visit Jaipur. If you're on the lookout for the next such event that will leave you in splits, then you have to head over to "Utna Confidence Nahi Hai", an insane comedy show by the one and only Pratyush Chaubey.

In case you were feeling down and out from the hectic work week, the tiring assignments and the never ending chores, then this is one event that will give you a much needed break from it all. Albeit a few hours, the impact on the show will stay with you for days to come and you'll be internally smiling if you just recall some of his jokes. No more is the 9:00 meeting going to be so boring.

Chaubey's story on his journey to become a stand up comedian is one worth commending. Having left his job as an engineer at a leading company, he fully invested himself to the art of stand up comedy. For a long time, he struggled and in his initial days, YouTube wasn't very kind to him.

However, he waded through it all, found his own niche and an audience that appreciates him and then he made his way up from there. We can safely say that you're going to be in for a surprise when you see him masterfully perform his craft. His style of telling his woeful story through jokes and hilarious situations is what we love about him.

If you're not convinced then check out some of his work on YouTube and you'll surely be hooked on. If you're planning to go watch him, be sure to book your tickets here.
