I am Karthi Durai, also known as KD-kind of guy who has always Stand in front when it comes to cultural activities since my school days. When I joined Engineering, I realized it was not my cup of tea because I always wanted some form of medium to express what I visualize. Hence, I think I could become a Director which would, of course, be difficult at that point of time, and hence I started writing my visualizations as stories, jokes and that is how I even channelize my graphic designing skills. After my graduation years, I came to know about this medium called Stand-up Comedy and I started to follow it. The first Stand-up Comedy video that I saw was Kenny Sebastians ' Bucket Bath, which I found way hilarious and all he did was exaggerate the whole plot. I speak to myself saying I am funny, why not try this?! As usual, like every Open micer, I prepare set about cliched things like Facebook and Engineering and perform my first gig at Evams Open Mic at Swiss Hutte, Nungambakkam in Chennai. I started hunting for other Open mics in the city and came to know about Chennai Comedy who run Open mics like Evam. I attend most of the open mics with all my dedication and either I keep bombing continuously or I get very mild chuckles as I ca understand the dynamics behind Stand-up Comedy. The group of newbie comics had a workshop conducted by Mr. Annamalai, Founder of Tanglish Comedy, who taught us basic tools of comedy. And, of course, with constant feedback from fellow comics on the circuit, I receive clear vision of how to approach set in terms of comedy. Most of my friends as well as people who usually meet me always refer to me as funny guy-guess thats how I get friend-zone every single time. Haha! Kenny videos help my curiosity clarify about approach; and that turns out to be passion for me. Presenting my visualization to people in the best way through the appropriate medium is what I want for a long period of time. And as far as Stand-up Comedy is concern, you get results immediately for your work and it is not that easy to make people laugh. So if you think people should love your work, you should put that much effort into it. For me, every performance is learning, no matter whether you kill it or bomb it, there is always takeaway where it helps you to improve and build yourself further. Two places where I had memorable shows, including good and bad ones, were Alliance Francaise and Backyard, Adyar in Chennai. I am not great at English and when I started out, I delivered comedy in English which I wasnt that comfortable with. Yes, initially, I was bit hesitant to try Comedy in Tamil as I think Stand-up Comedy is carven out only in English, which I realize was wrong.
