Mohd Suhel has added more dates to his ongoing tour and will be performing his shows Memories and Dysfunctional across four states. Starting tomorrow, the comedian will be hitting venues in Delhi, Pune, Nagpur, Indore, Ahmedabad and Chandigarh. Considering his signature deadpan style, if there’s anyone that’s going to have to bring energy, it’s going to be you!
QUICK! WHAT’S THIS SHOW ABOUT?
Memories is a story about a college fight between two turtles. Dysfunctional has material from my corporate days.
HOW MANY SHOWS ARE YOU DOING, ACROSS HOW MANY CITIES?
For now, I am doing Delhi, Pune, Nagpur, Indore, Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Chandigarh.
HOW LONG DID YOU SPEND WRITING THE SHOW?
IS THIS ALREADY LEADING UP TO A RECORDED SPECIAL FOR A STREAMING PLATFORM?
Nope, not until 2027.
WHY SHOULD WE WATCH IT LIVE?
I was fired from my sales job.
ACCORDING TO YOU, WHO WOULD BE THE IDEAL PLUS-ONE TO BRING TO THE LIVE SHOW?
All of my audiences are introverted like me. 95% of them come alone. So, whoever is willing to come?
HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE NAME ‘DYSFUNCTIONAL’?
The show has self-deprecating material only. That’s the first name that came to my mind when I was planning to start doing the trial runs of the show. The show has nothing to do with erectile dysfunction.
ON A SCALE OF 1 – WTFAMIDOING, HOW NERVOUS ARE YOU?
WTFAMIDOING. You can never get rid of this thought in standup.
SINCE YOU TOUR A LOT, WHICH PART OF THE COUNTRY HAVE YOU NOT PERFORMED IN AND WHY?
I haven’t done Andaman, Nicobar, Jammu and Kashmir yet, for personal and financial reasons.
WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF SPOTS YOU HAVE HIT IN A DAY AND WHEN WAS THIS?
Five to six. This was in Mumbai in 2019 when the comedy scene was at its peak.
