For those of you who still haven’t made any plans for the weekend, well, fret not, we’re here for the rescue.

If you’re living in Mumbai a good laugh session can help distract you from all that is happening in the city, all the noises the incessant rain and the never ending grind. An hour or two of rib tickling comedy, a beer in hand and the world seems like a better, funnier place to live in. Abish Mathew, Urooj Ashfaq and Aman Jotwani will be performing in Cuckoo Cafe this Saturday, so get ready to LOL and forget about rest.

Abish is a known name in the standup world, his jokes are fresh, quirky and relatable, plus when the guy is actively trying to be funny, who can deny his charm.

When was the last time you actually reminisced about your childhood as an Indian kid of the 80’s and 90’s? Remember the muddy play-offs on the field during monsoons and jumping into puddles without a care? Even Maa’s popping-with-anger eyes and threats couldn’t stop us from getting drenched or simply, dunking our shoes into mud pools. The after-math of such activities wasn’t too civil but hey, we’d do anything to get back those carefree times again!

Since we don’t have a time-machine or any sort of super-power which’d take us back, you might be interested in an ‘adult’ Mud Bash which is happening here in Malad. Before you roll your eyes and think that it’s already a daily ‘mud bash’ sesh here in the city during this season, well, let us tell you how this event will be different.

What’s Happening?

This upcoming weekend, on the 3rd and 4th of August, you should be attending Mumbai’s first ever Mud Bash happening at the Roaring Farms, Malad. This event might sound icky and ewww but hear us out. The mud available on this property, will apparently be organic and it’ll be cloaked in therapeutic features so this fun event will also serve as a beauty therapy.

Being hosted by Tashipta, the sprawling venue will be loaded with ATV rides, shower spaces, medical facilities, food and beverages, t-shirts for the event and of course, TONS OF MUD for you to roll in. They’ll also have Mud Football, Kichad Kabbadi, Mud Pool and even a rain dance with prominent DJs to keep you swaying.

Also, if you’re planning on taking your family along, please keep in mind that on the 1st day, entry is only for adults above 18. But the 2nd day, is open to all age groups so bring in the kids too.

So tag your friends and make a plan already because the weekend ain’t too far and this is an event, which’ll be memorable for a very long time!

Everything in this universe- everything- has humor attached to it, no matter what it is. Funny guy Kunal Kamra is one of the few comedians who has proved this to us and did you know he’s performing at a show in Mumbai? He is one of the most relatable comedians of our times and has showed us that every each coin has a not just two sides, but a funny one as well.

Have no doubts about it, the show is going to be nothing short of a laughing riot and soon into it, you’ll be laughing and on the floor. Kamra is widely regarded as an artist that has no boundaries, no limitations and most importantly, no filter. His blunt truthfulness and charismatic delivery make his shows stand out in a sea of many other comedians.

The best part is that his content is loaded with punny one liners, dry wit and is absolutely relatable. This time, his show has the theme of “Fresher Thoughts” and for all of you who think life is leading you nowhere, its leading you to his show.

His shows are peppered with real life incidents, that he unabashedly shares with the audience, so you too can laugh at Indians, their bureaucracy and hypocrisy. If you’ve never been to his shows, be cautious, you’re treading on the thin ice of humour. The style of delivery is true to its core and is heartfelt, which makes it all the more funny.

In fact, he is one of the few comedians who has been part of several serious incidents but that hasn’t stopped him from delivering his edgy content. He has turned almost every serious death threat, backlash from politicians into a new light and often likes to joke about them.

His show is certainly going to be a wild ride and on 29th June, you know where to find us. Well, its time to ditch the sitcoms and experience some true to the heart, relatable comedy this weekend.

When: 29th June, 2019
Where: Rang Sharda: Mumbai Bandra Reclamation, Bandra West
