The joyous season of winter is finally here in the Pink city and it means that it is time for you to head out and check some of the cool events happening around! You may wonder why the winters are the best season for it, but the answer is quite simple.
This time, we've found something that should interest the literature lovers in each of you. In Jaipur, there's a coffee and book fair happening soon and it is what the inner intellectual in you needs. Here, you can sit back, relax, sip some coffee and reignite your love for books.
Literature festivals seem to be a dime a dozen right now not just in Jaipur, but at other places as well. Kitabay & Koffee is one that takes things quite differently. Instead of having you pick just one or two books, you get to take as many books as you want!
More than a literature fest, this is one event that is about spreading the message of reading books. Here, you can purchase boxes, which you can then load to the brim with all sorts of books, no matter the individual price. If you're someone who has been meaning to stock up on some new novels, then this is the place to be.
What about the coffee?
When you're here, you can actually expect more than just books. The theme of the event is books and coffee, so naturally, you're going to find some caffeine here. These guys have gone through immense trouble to bring you coffee from the finest beans that can be found down in South India.
The variety of coffee is almost as vast as the entire book collection, if not more. From flavoured to ultra strong coffee, you can find it all here. The best part? You can find loads of like-minded people here who are always up for a striking conversation.
Enjoy the beautiful weather at the book fair, with some amazing coffee & your favourite books.

Residents of Jaipur are always on the lookout for a new and exciting event. It may be a funky dance party, a cool workshop, or a gut wrenching stand up comedy show. This time, its the comedy show that is going to leave you dazzled.
In December, Jaipurites can witness another unfiltered laugh riot featuring Manish Tyagi and trust us, he knows how to stir the crowd! The man has some insane experiences up his sleeve- afterall, he is a Naval Commander turned comedian.
Manish Tyagi is a huge internet sensation, mainly because of his rather non generic background. How often do you get to hear tales of Navy, told in a light hearted manner? Not very and now that you do have a chance, you've got to grab it with both hands.
He’ll talk about a plethora of topics, most of which you’ll be able to relate to and that will make his comedy even better. His jokes span a variety of topics, but are mostly rooted in the seas. His experience in the Navy has given him a lot to talk about and since he's a master storyteller, who peppers a dash of humor over it all, you can rest assured that you're in for some laughs.
In December, you get an exclusive chance to watch Tyagi and allow him to tickle your funny bones. If you've got other plans, cancel them because they're not better than this.
About Manish Tyagi
A retired commander of the Indian Navy, Manish Tyagi took to comedy in 2014 and there has been no looking back, ever since. His jokes are “mostly regional and observatory based” but he can, without a doubt, leave you in splits of laughter.
He has performed several gigs all across India, garnering a huge fan base wherever he treads and he was also a part of a ‘Comedy Festival’ at Auckland, NZ and Sydney, Australia!
Tyagi’s sense of comedy has taken him places, literally and figuratively and there’s no way you can miss out on this epic evening if you’re in town! So gather up your besties and head over for fresh humour and a laughter riot, which is bound to keep your spirits high.

The man has a natural talent for comedy and his show is just perfect for all those times that you need a break from your hectic work week. Now that he's finally coming over to Jaipur, you can go and pay him a visit, rather than just watching him on YouTube.
The one and only, India ka sakht launda is making his way over to Jaipur and it is exactly the stress buster that many of us have been on the lookout for. Honestly, there isn't a situation or comic-timing which Zakir Khan’t pull off with his charms and wit.
This wisecracker isn’t only a comedian- he is a prominent shayar and a desi launda who successfully pulls chords within us with his relatable ‘Indian’ content.
Surely, you've seen the videos, which means that there's no point in introducing him further. In his new comedy sketch, Survival Instincts, he talks about all the snafus he's had in his life and how he used moonwalking to deal with it all.
At any rate, we love his comedy. He's got a quirky style that is unique to him and when he peppers it around with some other funky acts, punny one liners and other stuff, that's when his comedy comes to life. We can assure you, you're going to love this show.
About Zakir Khan

He has won accolades for his Amazon Prime Video special “Haq se Single” which has made him one of the most sought-after names in the field of Indian comedy! He's also got a YouTube channel, which lets you see what you're in for.
In the past, Zakir has also worked on his fictional show for Amazon Prime Video, titled “Humare Chacha Vidhayak”, which is slated for an early release next year!
Well, folks, there's no time to waste! The comedian is a sensation to say the least and if you miss out on his show, you're going to regret it. So grab a few friends, book your tickets!

For an outsider, Jaipur might just seem like a great place for all the youngsters. The city is vibrant and rich in culture, which are major contributors to the booming tourism scene. However, the actual youth of Jaipur often gets bored of the same things over and over again.
Now, to break the monotony of everyday life, Aakash Gupta is coming to town and we're gearing up to let the laughs out. His comedy set, "Excuse me, brother" has got a slew of new jokes that should speak to each one of us.
"Excuse me, brother" is going to be a series of jokes that have no themes, but are just there! Aakash Gupta is pushing the boundaries of what a conventional comedy show can be and is changing the game altogether.
With no theme to follow, he's free to express himself any way he wants, and one thing is for certain- it will have you rolling on the floor in no time. His comedic genius knows no bounds and everything he says sounds like the funniest thing you've ever heard.
The randomness of it all just captivates you and you're really eager to know what he's going to throw at you next. It's a comparison of what was before and what is now. We suggest that you go there without any expectations and just take the comedy show as it comes.

The book meetup has a fun theme this time and avid literature fans are in for a treat. Themeetup theme is all about books on humor, so you guys are in for a few laughs. It is here that you can rekindle your love for the greats- Wodehouse, Allen and Vonnegut, along with a few more people who just want a dose of good books.
