It was wet and drizzly, quite depressing for a Friday evening, huh? But even this freaky weather could not put a dampener on Indian stand-up Kanan Gill's show this weekend.
And the crowds that braved such inclement weather and showed up for All Correct Opinions, which took place at DUCTAC on Friday, were not disappointed. The 'bad weather' blues soon dissipated as we left laughing all the way home after a massive one-and-half-hour rip-roaring, side-splitting session.

The YouTube sensation's witty one-liners were an instant hit with the audience. Kanan gave a funny spin to topics ranging from muggings to parents' expectations from their kids and how to deal with one's girlfriend. His extempore roasting session also had the crowd giggling and guffawing as he singled out members of the audience and made them subjects of his jokes.

However, Kanan left the biggest surprise of the evening for the end. Whoever knew that the Bangalore-based former software engineer-turned-comedian is such a talented musician?  His witty interpretations backed by his folk-style strumming on the guitar left us in awe!

Kanan's one-man comedy and music act sure made us feel all sunny even on a rainy winter's evening. Good show!
