Dear Bhai/ Babu/ Baby/ netizen,
First off, my apologies for speaking about myself in third person above. That was done by my webdesigner aka my wife (sorry ladies). I kept it because I thought it looked kinda sexytime, and also I get to come off all chill and above it in this paragraph here.
‘What’s an Anjan?’ is my baby, my brainchild, my first ever stand-up hour, and I assure you it’s funny as fuck.
A quick heads up: I’m not for everybody. If you like mild salsa or Justin Bieber, eat tandoori chicken with a fork and knife, slap people on the back a lot, or get uncomfortable when people talk about race, religion, dicks and vaginas, you’re not gonna like me.
If you’re easily offended, homophobic, very racist, not racist enough, extremely old, or extremely young, odds are you won’t like me or your parents won’t let you see me.
On the other hand, If you like borat, Louis C.K., Archer, or South Park, you might like me.
If you like dancing in the elevator, saying shitty things just to say them, cropdusting strangers, having a good go at your ear with a cotton bud, revelling in other people’s awkward situations, or prank phone calls, you’ll definitely like me.
Hang on a minute though
This isn’t to say that you shouldn’t come out to see my show if you’re not primed to like me. I have absolutely no standards for my audiences, and I’ll gladly take your money regardless of your age, inclinations, or salsa-preference. That’s just the kind of guy I am: I’m looking out for your best interests and letting you know what’s what ahead of time.
While you’re here, feel free to give my stand-up vids a whirl, comment virulently on my blog and check out my twitter. If you’ve got a question, browse the FAQs first, and then if you’ve still got a question, shoot me an email @ email@example.com.
Looking forward to seeing you at my show. Peace. <3 <3 <3 xoxoxoxo
