Roast: A Stand Up Comedy Unaccepted
Roast: A Stand Up Comedy Unaccepted

Roast is a popular form of contemporary Stand-up Comedy wherein a specific individual, a guest of honour, is subjected to good natured jokes at their expense, intended to amuse the event`s wider audience. In addition to jokes and insult comedy performed in right-spirited manner, such events may also involve genuine praise and tributes. But in our country we have seen quite a few such events, most of them only becoming subject to controversy and ridicule. Artists of the form have also been legally threatened. While the youth approves and enjoys the form, many distinguished personalities have only ridiculed it. What is your take on this?

Well I think when it comes to fun and the sole and honest purpose of making people laugh everything should be accepted and taken in its right spirit. The same goes for Roast but I don`t feel in a country like India there can be a dignified or substantial place for this form of comedy even in the next 25 years given the country`s social scenario wherein orthodox nature and exaggerated and pretentious showcasing and stronghold of beliefs is still rooted in the minds of certain people.
