The Johnny Lever and Jamie Lever Comedy Show organised by SAARZ showed that laughter does run in the family
Since our childhood, we have all watched Johnny Lever play some epic roles in Bollywood movies. And through those roles, he has won our hearts by making us laugh till we drop. He has also set a high standard for comics in the industry. Adelaide welcomed him as the first most recognised Bollywood comedian, and he had all the right jokes and moves (yes, the man can dance and crack the funniest jokes) had the audience rolling in laughter.
The Johnny Lever and Jamie Lever Comedy Show was organised by SAARZ Event’s Sunay Zaveri, Ankit, Renish Satani and Zimmi Shah at the Woodville Town Hall, Woodville SA. This three-hour long show, emceed by Sunaina Sharma and Niraj Pandya, was worth every cent. Yes, the show was that long and no, Johnny Lever didn’t perform for the entire duration. The major chunk of the show was performed by Johnny lever and filler performances were done by Gaurav Sharma, a standup comedian and a humour poet, and Jamie Lever, the budding stand-up artist who is the daughter of the legend himself. These filler acts were neatly timed and were equally entertaining.
Johnny Lever may be close to 60, but he still has that charm and is filled with so much energy that is extremely contagious. The way he expresses himself and cracks jokes about his day-to-day observations about common people, politics, Bollywood celebrities, TV shows, and so on, makes you relate to things and find humor in everything. Not all stand-up artists can do that and cater to a larger audience while keeping it PG-13. Like her father, Jamie too has that charm. She is super confident and has some really funny jokes in her kitty. This makes you realise that the apple hasn’t fallen too far from the tree. She is definitely a stand-up comic that you should look out for.
By the end of the show, Johnny Lever took control of the stage and leaves you with some emotional and happy moments that make you wish that you could recap the whole show. And the closer you are to the stage the more exciting it will be. Unlike other stand-up shows, you don’t have to worry about being the target of the jokes if you sit in the front row. But whatever the row, don’t miss a chance to enjoy this hilarious show with your family.
