Daniel Fernandes is a stand-up comedy star. If you haven’t heard of him, here’s a story that you should read. Still, knowing all about him isn’t half as exciting as watching this funnyman live — so that’s what you really need to do! Black Dog is making it simple by hosting Easy Evenings across Ludhiana, Chandigarh and Jaipur in November, with Daniel Fernandes in the hot seat. Here’s why you should attend in large numbers…
YOU NEED TO LAUGH OUT LOUD
You know what they say about ‘all work and no play,’ and frankly, why opt to be dull? Go ahead and laugh out loud — with Daniel Fernandes hosting Black Dog Easy Evenings across four cities this month, you have no excuse not to! His brand of humour is intelligent and socially meaningful, so it’s far from hollow haha-hehe.
From legal lafdas to suicide and Syria, Daniel takes on tough topics to make you see the lighter, brighter side of life. You will feel rejuvenated by the experience (these smart people agree that laughter is the best medicine), so you ought to give it a go.
YOU LIKE TO POKE FUN AT THE SAME GUYS HE DOES
Some guys just make it easier for comedians to do their job. We have many, many candidates this side of the Atlantic too, but there’s one man in particular (at the other end of the world) who really lends himself to a good joke. Sample this and you’ll know exactly who Daniel Fernandes is happy to take digs at:
YOU LIKE YOUR STAND-UP COMEDY TO BE DELIVERED BY A GUY WHO HAS A HEART
Daniel Fernandes has guts (more about that later), but he also has his fundas in order. “I have to love what I’m doing otherwise I just can’t do it. Money isn’t motivation enough,” he says, putting us firmly in his favour. He laughs about transitioning into stand-up comedy because he wanted a job that came with no boss, no stingy leave policy (so he can take off as often as he likes) and no early morning meetings. The truth is, being a comedian makes him genuinely happy — all the job jokes are just for laughs.
YOU’D RATHER HANG OUT WITH A GUY YOU CAN RESPECT
Daniel says, “It isn’t easy to get up on stage all by yourself, speak to a large crowd and make them laugh consistently every 20 to 30 seconds.” Anyone who has tried to do this will know he’s right. Being a stand-up comic is hard work, even though a good comedian (here are some of our favourites) makes it look effortless. Daniel delivers the laughs and he’s well respected on the circuit, but he should have your respect because he has achieved success the hard way.
He quit a stable job to follow his heart and struggled with his finances for some time before success came knocking. He has broken the 9-to-5 barrier by daring to do things differently. He dreamt of a life full of five-star hotels and flights across the world (he’s only half-joking) and he has worked hard to make that dream come true. Now he tells us the new Daniel Fernandes five-year plan includes a few fancy cars and we can tell you he’s well on his way to achieving that too!
YOU WILL BE IN NORTH INDIA THIS NOVEMBER
Wanting to catch Daniel Fernandes in action, and actually being able to, are two different things. This month, Black Dog is bringing Daniel’s brand of laughs to Ludhiana, Chandigarh and Jaipur, so if you are in any of those cities in early November, don’t miss this chance to make Black Dog Easy Evenings a part of your regular entrainment schedule. The show in Ludhiana is scheduled for November 3, at F Bar. From there, Daniel heads to F Bar in Chandigarh on November 10 and Holiday Inn in Jaipur on November 11, 2017. Make plans to see him soon!
