"…Hello, everyone. Welcome back to a prime new special episode. Today we are going to be interviewing a very special guest. Yes, it is. None other than Anderson has a standard comedian, speaker and founder of Halanka. Hey, Andersonharan, this is Olivia here. Hope you're doing amazing. So from your previous interactive conversation list, we all got to know what an incredible and humorous being you are. The sweetest to come across this time.…"
"…Hi, Olivia. I think I'm three minutes late. Forgive me for that. Okay, let's jump into the questions.…"
"…If you have a very friendly crowd or your best friends are around, I'm pretty sure you're going to be equally contributing to any conversation. But in sports possible. Like, maybe 60% of the stand up comedians could be kind of like introverts. But I am both.…"
"…A wonderful answer. So moving on to the next question. Do you observe situations and create comedy or can you create comedy just in your head.…"
"…I actually do both because if I'm just coming up with the stories that I have, it might not connect with the present audience. So I have to do both. So before I tell the funny jokes that I lived through, I would probably try to connect with the people by asking questions or asking for some memories and build that rapport at the beginning. And then I go to the story. So when I do that, it's more relatable and people connect with the story faster.…"
"…That's an amazing answer. It will surely help the budding comedians. Just moving on to the next question. What are your feelings about the industry in general.…"
"…No one wants to be a stand up comedian because they think this is like too much pressure to handle. But if you are really genuinely love doing it and you don't stress yourself too much on anything, you just find a lot of things funny, and then you just casually talk about it and then interact with people, then that's a different case. So I think the industry depends on who is leading. So the community I do stand up comedy.…"
"…Being a part of your community would be the best wish anyone can have because everyone loves to laugh. And honestly I lowkey wish I was a part of your community. But anyhow moving on to the next question. And this is a very intriguing one. So which comedy style do you usually opt for.…"
"…So my ones are more like a clean comedy and then anyone can relate to it. Like even people inside the family, while they're having their dinner or lunch, they can still talk about a comedy that I did. Even children can am related to it. So very basic comedy I do. And the major thing I do with that is the body language. So you can consider me as since I'm really inspired by Kenny Sebastian. So you can actually categorize me into his style of comedy.…"
"…Well, well. Kenny Sebastian is a person that everybody loves, and I am pretty sure that the time isn't far away where you will be the next most loved comedians, apart from all. So moving on to the last question from my side, which will be which was the best set written by you and why do you name it the best? Also, if you could share that set with us, we wouldn't. We all love to love together.…"
"…Well, well, well. That's a good question. My favorite set is called khaki alert during presentation. It's actually poop alert during the presentation. It's more like a real story, but it involves a lot of body language. So I'm not sure if I can deliver it to the best quality with voice because my comedy is more of a visual comedy. So actually, they're on YouTube.…"
"…I don't know if the body is like, oh, you have a live writing right now. So clear your stomach and then go for the life or is it just going for a life? You're going to have the worst days of your life right now, starting with your poop. So, yeah, I don't understand how it works.…"
"…Well, the little laugh that you had at the very beginning of your speech made it very noticeable that there's something great to come up. And the part that you shared is very relatable to all of us. For me, a lot, very much. But yes, thanks a lot, Anderson, for spending your precious time with us and sharing your knowledge and your insights, your journey, your conversation with all of us. This interview felt more like a conversation all because of you.…"
"…Thank you so much, Olivia, for having me. And then allocating time in your calendar to, you know, prepare some great questions. And thank you for reaching out to me. You know, these are those little moments that I feel special, like someone is asking me questions about what I do and how I do it. I'm always into sharing my experiences. So this was a wonderful opportunity. And yes, thank you for having having me.…"
"…Hey, Anderson here. It's Andrea here. I hope you're doing good and fine. I just want to ask you a question. The question is how you got into this comedy platform when you find the talent, like, this is my thing, I'm going to do it when you found it and how you really got into this comedy, I just want to know that. Thank you. Bye.…"
"…The answer to that is I actually wanted to experience it first before choosing. So I actually wanted to prove myself on what actually it works for me. So I tried singing at open mics to see if I can actually sing. I tried dancing related stuff to see if it's working for me. I tried stand up comedy to see if it's working for me. I tried keynote speaking in front of public to see if it's working for me.…"
"…Hi Mrinalika. This side. I wanted to ask you, where do you hope to go from here? And what are your plans for the future.…"
"…So at the moment, my idea is to reach more people with the comedian brand of mine. I also have a very nice, awesome team of comedians who are really good with what they're doing. So my plan is to create a brand like a common brand for all of us to spread more laughter and more purposeful comedy. And also I feel like I'm pretty sure comedy is something related with mental health too.…"
