Catching Comedians: Live Stand-up in Delhi NCR

Do you enjoy laughing? If the answer is yes, {and why shouldn’t it be yes?}, then there are options galore for you in Delhi and NCR. Our city has an active stand-up comedy scene, and there are many venues, and companies, which regularly host comedy nights.

We’re listing down a few for you. You can thank us later for your dose of the best medicine in the world.

Open mic nights

There is a happening open mic scene in town, hosted by individual comedians. The audience gets to enjoy a free show and the artists get to try new material, so everybody wins.  The Piano Man Jazz Club and Toddy Shop host events like these often.

Canvas Laugh Club at Manhattan The Craft Brewery

Canvas Laugh Club, one of the biggest names in stand-up comedy in India, hosts regular stand-up events at Manhattan every Thursday.

Akshara Theatre

Akshara theatre is one of the most beautiful venues for theatre and comedy events in town. It is smaller in comparison to places like the India Habitat Centre but the warm setting and dim ambience makes it feel like you’re enjoying yourself almost in a private set-up.


There are event organisers like Yahavi who have recently entered the scene and taken it by storm. Yahavi organises regular comedy events at venues across town through the week. You can check out their website here.

Summer House Cafe

The Summer House Café in Hauz Khas Village hosts comedy events every Tuesday, starting approximately 9pm.


If you think you have it in you, why not you take the mic at the next open mic in town? See you there.
