Stand-up comedian Sapan Verma can cook a five-course meal. But there’s a catch.

Dine out, order in, or cook a meal on weekends?

Ask mom to cook something yummy and homely. Dining out is highly overrated. And overpriced.

Can cook a five-course meal/make a sandwich/boil water/don’t know how the gas works.

I can cook a fantastic five-course meal. If you can eat Maggi for all five courses, that is. I also know how to boil eggs and toast bread. I think I’m ready for MasterChef Australia.

On weekends: work out like it’s just another day/go easy/exercise…what’s that?

Weekends is just like any other day for me. In the sense that I look at my alarm, procrastinate, and then promise myself that I’ll go the gym from tomorrow.

Where do you party?

In my room, under my quilt, along with my laptop and earphones. Sometimes, stag entry is not allowed so my friends from the fridge join in.

Cosmopolitan or whisky on the rocks?

I was really inspired by Don Draper of Mad Men so I tried having Old Fashioned once and I almost puked. Whisky Sour works best for me.

A TV show you could watch reruns of all Sunday?

Entourage, because it’s just so much fun. Even Friends and Californication. I feel like the modern shows don’t have that repeat value and charm anymore.

Street food that makes your day?

Sev Puri. Or anything else that doesn’t come with a side portion of diarrhoea.

Couch potato or painting the town red?

I don’t like crowded and noisy places. But I love walking around and exploring the city. So you’ll often see me walking around Kala Ghoda and Colaba on weekends.

Board games or outdoor sports?

Video games, because you can pretend to be doing outdoor sports while sitting in one place like a board game.

Twitter or Instagram?

Instagram. I’ve realised that I only follow either cute pet accounts or hot models. But I do check Twitter every time I’m feeling optimistic and upbeat about life and want to get back to reality.
