Women in comedy reveal their favourite joke on stage

1. Kaneez Surka

“I am 35 years old and don’t have a baby yet. So, on stage, I always say: ‘My biological clock is ticking but I can’t seem to have a baby because men always insist on wearing a condom.’ I guess I can use this line till I don’t actually have a baby!”

2. Aayushi Jagad

“I love doing a joke I actually used on my first Queens of Comedy set. It’s repetitive but cracks everyone up every single time. So, I say this almost every time: ‘Technically I’m from Pune, but now I live in denial.’ It works every time!”

3. Priya Banerjee

“This one might seem....Facepalm-ish! I say: ‘What did Jay-Z call his girlfriend before they got married? Feyoncé.’ Funny, isn’t it?”

4. Punya Arora

“‘Hi my name is....’ is obviously a favourite! I’m only kidding. I’m a Punjabi. And, most of the time I get on stage, I introduce myself and then make a joke on being Punjabi. I should say I’m quite lucky that way because when it comes to me, there’s quite a lot to make fun of and that’s something that’ll never go out of style!”

5. Jeeya Sethi

“This is my favourite one out of all the jokes I’ve cracked on stage. It’s a question that has couples shocked. ‘Me: How long have you been together.’ Once they respond, I ask the woman: ‘Is your husband trained’. The look on their faces is priceless!”
