Stand-up comedy may still be struggling to make a dent in the Indian entertainment scene, but Gurgaon’s large appetite for tasteful humour is encouraging. Well-timed digs, witty quips, sarcasm or even just a few silly puns; the comedy scene is growing to accommodate it all.

Don’t believe us? Presenting Exhibit A—this handy guide to laughing your way through Gurgaon.

Thursday Nights at Manhattan Craft Brewery feature stand-up shows that are best enjoyed with a frosted glass of their freshly-brewed beer. These weekly Comedy Nights are sort of perfect to beat any mid-week blues, as three or four comics take the stage to tickle your funny bone and keep you going till you’re gasping for air.

Let’s be honest—that sounds great.
