Laughter hijacked

For some weeks now, Star One has been tom-tomming its new show, the Great Indian Laughter Challenge. A quest for the best stand-up comic in the country. Well, it should at least be revealing, I thought, and plonked meself down to watch it.

THIS is Indian humour? This?! Tasteless themes - obesity, colour and nagging wives? Completely lacking in sophistication or good sense... there was even one imitation of a rooster. Used to have one kid do that at colony functions.

Shameful and saddening. yuck.
