Johny Lever is back on stage after 17 years with his blockbuster live stand-up show, Johny Lever Live! Say the name out loud and your mind automatically projects an animated face that rivals Carrey's elasticity!
Young Johny grew up in the Dharavi area of Mumbai, surviving with the help of his sharp wit. He made it by putting a smile on others' faces and it shows during the show. Lever is a live wire on stage as he talks of his beginnings, his struggles, his experiences as an actor and his observations as a fellow human. He does this with so much energy, sincerity and hilarity that he cannot be denied our attention for even a minute! The show is a clean, family-oriented stand-up show, in which he interacts with the audience through his routines, resulting in a laughter riot. Johny enjoys his time with the audience, letting his warmth for his fans shine through. He also shares anecdotes of his life, stringing together experiences that every person can relate to.
He begins the show by talking about his struggle on the streets of Mumbai, when he used mimicry to sell pens, which ended with him getting picked up by the Mumbai police for being a nuisance! He explores the human bias on looks - On returning from his first overseas performance with Kalyanji and Anandji, he was pushed into a line of custom clearance along with people who just returned from Gulf, solely based on his appearance. He observes life around him, while retaining his sense of humor!
