The large crowd of students had its fill of laughter as he took contemporary issues, scenes & situations, even currency ban, and made LPU students live in a healthy comic environment of about two-hours at a stretch. His naughty banter, wit, teasing, mockery, joking, chitchat was applauded by all.

Addressing students, Pant shared: “I am very happy to be in the humour industry. It is really contradictory that being funny is serious business. We all stand-up comedians tickle audience through our presence of mind. I am a home-grown comedian and carry the Indian sensibility in my acts. As everyone loves a good laugh, we stand-up comedians are presently the new star performers. Persons like me are pulling crowds away from multiplexes to spaces dedicated for stand-up shows. In fact, comedy has ushered as a great art form.”
