Suchandrika Chakrabarti is a freelance journalist and podcaster who has always dreamed of trying stand-up comedy, but only managed to make that happen in January this year, which tells you something about her comic timing. She's a semi-finalist in the Funny Women Stage Awards 2020, and has been named by them as One to Watch (for comedy value, not loitering).
My Joke of the Day:
Most common Quarantine Activity:
1) Managing the internal screaming
2) Looking up 1980s mini-trampoline workouts I won't do
3) Repeating step 1
Favorite Quarantine show/movie:
I May Destroy You was incredible, and, among many things, depicted the neon-lit nightmare of London when you're 20-something and have FOMO. So glad to be past that stage of life, and have a government-mandated reason to stay in. Other than that, I smashed through podcasts like The Anthropocene Reviewed, You Must Remember This (the recent Polly Platt series is brilliant) and Oh Hello: the P'dcast
Favorite Instagram accounts:
Favorite quarantine meal & drink:
I've been making a lot of shashuka, which goes well with challah bread and multiple cups of tea
