About The Event

In a fast moving mechanical world a moment of smile and laughter is something that everybody would long for and the Angry Jaat: Stand Up Comedy would make sure that is more laughter in your life than you can ever think of as Sanjay Rajoura returns to the world of stand up comedy after a long hiatus.

 

On April 14, 2014 Sanjay would take a pick on the neo liberal capitalist modern Indian in a sarcastic and witty manner at the Angry Jaat: Stand Up Comedy with questions like "The shine of modern India: too much hai?" at the Sri Ram Center of Art and Culture, New Delhi, where the  New Delhi Comedy Club is hosting his standup comedy event.

 

A software engineer by training, and a humorist by instinct, Sanjay Rajoura has around 500 shows to his credit. Having performed across the country, and is the only performer to have been invited by the American Consulate in Karachi to perform in Pakistan.

 

Sanjay prefers calling himself a storyteller rather than a comedian and some of his sensational solo hits include "Jat in Mood", "End the Occupation", "Sanjay Rajoura ko gussa kyun aata hai" and "Gustakhi Maaf" among others. In addition he is also actively involved in films and television and prides of having been a host for a show called " What's with Indian Women," on FOX .

 

Sanjay Rajoura completed his education from the Birla Institute of Technology and joined a corporate organization soon. After surviving for almost a decade amidst the corporate buffoonery, he had decided to quit his job and move to San Francisco, which is where he stumbled upon comedy.

 

Apart from standup comedy, Sanjay has also had a stint in  films with movies like a "The Fiction" which has been critically acclaimed in international film festivals across the globe. A few other films are on the floor or about to be released. Sanjay is also making a film of his own. The film is based in Pakistan is a work in progress.

 

Sanjay's style of comedy is more of an expression of his anger on the world around him. A Jat from western U.P., he talks about the cultural and ideological clash between the world he hails from and the modern urban spaces.


He however, prefers to reserve his special criticism for the neo liberal capitalist India. He brings out the contradictions in modern India through his stories from Bulandshahar in U.P. to San Francisco and back. He constantly challenges the accepted and sacred social structures of family marriage etc. Corporates in India is his favorite punching bag, which is evident from his satirical comments, anecdotes and jokes at his standup comedy events.
