Author: Yuvi February 3, 2023 Bad posts, tough jobs and hostel shenanigans - Times Anubhav Singh Bhasi made us cry, laugh

New Delhi: Meerut-based comedian Anubhav Singh Basi, a self-proclaimed ‘entrepreneur’, brings his audience to tears without laughing too hard. Be it his incredibly relatable stories or his quick-witted delivery style, Bassi has created a niche and popularized it as ‘Be a Bassi’!. From being a lawyer to an entrepreneur to now a widely loved comedian, Bassi has already come a long way on Prime Video with his debut stand-up special ‘Baas Khar Bassi’. Highly relatable and hilariously unique, here are five instances from Bassey’s various stand-up sets where he made us cry (from laughter!).

Zindagiya beet rahi hai loko ki, Bandra tak bohochne mein (People spend their whole lives just to reach Bandra)

Anyone who has visited Mumbai or Mumbai knows it. Bassi jokes about this in detail in his standup special ‘Baas Kar Bassi’ streaming on Prime Video. A true Delhi boy, Bhasi is truly fascinated by the city’s horrendous traffic situation and leaves the Mumbai audience in splits by talking about it.

Friend! Apke Abba Aaye Hai

A minefield of memes, this comic from his ‘Roommate’ collection makes viewers lose their minds with his honesty and hilarious delivery as he is caught between a wild roommate and his equally strict father. While we sympathized with Basie’s roommate, we were all waiting for the confrontation between him and his father at the end, thanks to Basie’s impeccable storytelling.

jab pohot duff hi who, rose mai hi jao? (The job is so tough, I have to go to the office only everyday?)

The daily 9-5 hustle and bustle has drained many of us and we find ourselves running out of offices, battling traffic, weather and public transport. Bassey recounts how he once tried to do just that, but failed (or not at all) in his special song. His silly stories resonate so well with the audience that they can’t help but laugh out loud.

Koi Sense High Is Bad Ki? Hume bohot lag rahi thhi uss time pe (Is there any sense in this idea? We thought it was very clever at the time!)

Yes, haven’t we all lived or are currently living at a point in our lives when we didn’t know what we were doing? Later, when we look back, we may laugh at ourselves, or regret our choices, but Bassey didn’t. Instead he makes jokes! In recounting one such story, he admits that what he considered genius was pretty silly, but he was having fun, and that’s all that matters.

Mere pass experience? Experience ke nam pe mera nam hi Anubhav hai pas (Do I have experience? In the name of experience, Anubhav is just my name)

Any great actor has the ability to play with words to enthrall the audience and enthrall them in their performance. Bassey is so adept at playing around with sentences and weaving them so well with his experiences that listeners call out and cheer his power-packed punchlines. Baas Khar Bussy is full of hilarious one-liners that will crack up the audience every time!

Anubhav Bassi in his new stand-up special ‘Baas Khar Bassi!’ He takes the audience through his early career and questionable choices, retracing how he, along with his flatmates and friends, dealt with life’s many highs and lows. Directed by comedian Abhishek Upmanyu, this hilarious special is now streaming exclusively on Prime Video in 240+ countries and territories.
