High Spirits is organising another edition of its popular Freakin' Hilarious Night series on January 9, this time featuring stand up artistes Samson Koletkar and Shyam Bhat. Koletkar is a first-generation immigrant in America and brings cerebral, witty, clean and thought-provoking humour with a global perspective. His subtle satire addresses religious and political hypocrisies, social issues and day-to-day absurdities of human nature. Shyam Bhat, a psychiatrist by day and stand up comedian by night, began his career in the US as well. After winning the Raw open mic contest at the Comedy Store in Mumbai, he has been a regular performer in Bangalore and Mumbai. His humour is ironic and has witty insights into culture, relationships and changing India.
Classical vocalist Dr. Kalyani Bondre will present a unique concert titled Bhaav Rang Raganche on January 12 at Patrakar Bhavan Auditorium. The concert marks the launch of Bondre's Hindustani classical music album released under the label Fountain Music Company.
