After successful show of ‘Blame it on Yashraj’ last year in September, this time Swishin Events is brining ‘Bottoms Up X-Rated’ to Jaipur in association with Crowne Plaza Jaipur Tonk Road.
Bharat Dabholkar’s risqué musical revue Bottoms Up that was a game-changer for English theatre in the 1980s, is back as New Bottoms Up X-Rated. With an all-new cast, fresh jokes, lavish sets and extra glamour, this version promises to be a bigger extravaganza.
A popular, one-of-its kind English musical revue in its heyday, this entertainer has now made a comeback, with a few changes. With all the outrage that we’re witnessing with regards to comedy shows and celeb roasts in the country, the play couldn’t have found a better time to return to stage. Its content is topical and revolves around issues, on subjects that Indians can relate to – politics, Bollywood, cricket, news channels, the education system, advertising and marketing, budget airlines and more. Unlike a regular stand-up act, which also has elements of satire, here the jokes are accompanied by songs, dances and oodles of glamour – typical to director Bharat Dabholkar’s style of theatre. In the cast, Kunal Vijayakar steals the show, whether it’s his school boy act or when he plays a transvestite air hostess. Anant Mahadevan in his many roles is top-notch. You even get to watch Dabholkar act on stage; he is the narrator who introduces the different segments and is effortless.
