Punit Pania is a corporate survivor. After 7 years of salaried existence, he is finally coming out of the closet as an artist. He is the single man behind Chalta Hai Comedy – an NGO without foreign funding. Having produced over 150 shows over the past year, Punit is making himself believe that comedy is the answer to a midlife crisis that is waiting to happen. Punit describes himself as a marketing professional by day, a struggling writer by night and somewhat of a comedian on weekends. Having travelled across 20 states of our great country, Punit peddles suburban philosophy disguised as observational comedy. Fluent in 5 languages, Punit’s ethnic background is a matter of debate that may be settled during his audience interactions. He denies having low self-esteem issues and thinks he is pretty good at writing artist bios in the third person.
A Masters in Business Administration from NMIMS and a Bachelors with Honours in Inter-religious studies from St. Xavier’s college, Punit also holds a diploma in Science Journalism and has written features for an online health portal (healthjockey.com) for over five years. He runs two websites with creditable success and considerable satisfaction. Punnuspage.com (online since Jan’2006) features current affairs and short stories and Slavesincstrip.com (online since Jan’2011) documents work place humour. SlavesInc has been featured on Freshly Pressed on wordpress.com in Sep 2011 and is currently in the process of being published as a full-length book. Two other books, one fiction and one eponymously titled 'Chalta Hai: Surviving Phonies and Cronies in Modern India' have also been commissioned for print publication. Punit organizes and hosts all of Chalta Hai’s shows across Mumbai, Pune, Surat and Baroda and has also performed in Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Vizag and Goa giving him considerable experience in entertaining diverse crowds at a variety of venues and in different formats.Less...
