Chanu’s show is friendly and honest. The way he discusses his mental health experiences is frank and to the point. When a comedian discusses such intense issues like suicide, it can split an audience; half of the crowd wants to laugh out of shock and the other wants to give him a hug (which is kind of my thing).
This show is intensely personal but Chanu is charming in his openness. With a big smile and a cheeky disposition, he made the audience laugh about things they probably hadn’t previously. While Chanu’s performance will benefit from more stage time to improve his technique and flow, there is something admirable about including something meaningful in a show to create discussion about a particular issue.
‘Geometrical Correctness’ blends story-telling, one-liners, the occasional dad joke (which Chanu treats as a guilty pleasure) and a small bit of poetry into a raw and personal show.
