Jeeves Verma is back at the Melbourne Comedy Festival in 2018 with his new show, The Fault In Our Sitars. Once again, Jeeves comes armed with anecdotes relating to his childhood and upbringing, his culture, and various past relationships. All the stories leave the audience no choice but to erupt into fits of laughter.
The show is structured around the themes that the seven vows of a Hindu wedding ceremony is centered on. Of course the standard topics are covered, namely love, trust, etc., but the Hindu vows have some rather comical themes like food, and children. Whilst this may initially seem a bit odd, Jeeves explains (in his own hilarious manner) how essential food is in a marriage. Has anyone ever tried to deal with a hangry girlfriend or wife?!
Jeeves accents his jokes with the use of graphs and charts which he draws up during the show. He manages to pictorially illustrate everything from the relationship how much to love your partner versus how picky you are about your partner’s habits, to the sex drive of a man versus a woman. All of this only increases how entertaining he is and there is nothing but laughs from the audience.
While must of Jeeves’ stories relate to him coming from an Indian background, people from all walks of life will find him funny. Regardless of your ethnicity, your age or your demographic, The Fault In Our Sitars is a show for everyone.
