Remember that coffee ad?A stand up comedian stammers all the way to his jokes? Well the truth is that laughter is the essence of life. Its the best medicine indeed. And the harder truth is that laughter is a serious business! There are various ways to evoke laughter..mainly harmless ways. There are a lot of comedy shows on television, laughter clubs, jokes on social media and live comedy. I believe the toughest part is the live one...the stand up comedy genre. I mean it actually requires guts to face a live audience and make them laugh!

Today with advent of millions of websites and social media its really easy to find something you love. Cities like Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi, Pune etc are throbbing with nightlife. Take the example of LiveinStyle.com An website dedicated to the parties and nightlife, it has got an entire section for stand up comedy. This is a revolutionary step in the comedy genre.
