After a steady track record of selling out and packed venues carefully planned and slotted throughout this year, we’ve seen Scratchcard grow fondly into the hearts of the good people of Delhi in the stand up comedy space. Here’s an account of our journey.
When we joined hands with Raghav Mandava who runs Cheese Monkey Mafia and revived the concept of Scratchcard, we did so with an open mind and wanted to make stand up comedy shows in Delhi more interesting and appealing than just throwing names around. We wanted to use the curiosity and anticipation of people to our advantage and by not disclosing the names of the artists helped us achieve exactly that.
The essence of Scratchcard is to have the perfect balance of upcoming and slightly more established stand up comics in a format that appeals to the sensibilities of going to a comedy show rather than just the name of the headliner. This helps us create an audience for stand up comedy that buys tickets without knowing who is performing.
Over 5 episodes being hosted in venues in Delhi such as Antisocial, Bandstand and Monkey Bar Scratchcard had always managed to deliver to audience expectations.We’ve had names such as Aditi Mittal, Rajneesh Kapoor, Zakir Khan, Jaspreet Singh, Rohan Joshi, Abhishek Upamanyu, Neeti Palta, Sumit Anand and of course Raghav Mandava.
With the help of easy and affordable ticketing, we also ensure that you get your money’s worth not only from the performing artists but also with the ambience, convenience of bookings and ease of procedure for accommodating everyone who’s in a for a laugh. Add all these variables up and you have an audience that isn’t just laughing but it’s doing so in it’s most comfortable & suitable environment.
Comedy in India is on the rise and flourishing in the healthiest ways possible with talent breaking new grounds everyday with insanely good content.
We at Limn have an extensive plan to build on the existing comedy space and whilst working on lot’s of exciting new things in the pipeline varying in scale of shows to bringing some of the best stand up comics in the country in a format like never before. December sees the launch of our new IP called Snap with Abhishek Upmanyu & Aditi Mittal at Siri Fort auditorium while we have officially taken over the stand up comedy nights at Summer House Café and looking to add more venues to build the scene in the city.
After all, timing is everything right!
