ADITI MIT­TAL

Herworld (Singapore) - - HUMOUR -

» THINGS THEY WOULDN’T LET ME SAY (NET­FLIX) Mit­tal left a cor­po­rate job in New York to re­turn to In­dia, and was fas­ci­nated by the nascent stand-up scene back home. She trained her­self and soon took to live per­for­mances – she was one of the first women stand-ups in the coun­try. In her spe­cial, she of course says the things she wants to say, with top­i­cal takes on be­ing sin­gle, wear­ing thongs, and the awk­ward­ness of In­dian movie rat­ings. This trail­blazer is now con­sid­ered one of the top 10 stand-up co­me­di­ans in In­dia, ac­cord­ing to The Times of In­dia.

Good one: “It’s re­ally nice to be in Aus­tralia be­cause I am re­ferred to as a co­me­dian. In In­dia I am re­ferred to as a fe­male co­me­dian. One of the top stereo­types as­so­ci­ated with a fe­male co­me­dian is they talk about sex too much; too much sex. I con­stantly get peo­ple on the In­ter­net be­ing like, ‘Ex­cuse me you are talk­ing too much about Bobs and Vagine’. Bobs and vagine is In­dian In­ter­net for boobs and vagina be­cause why should you be able to spell it if you haven’t seen it.”
