This is our 70th episode and to celebrate, we wanted a celebrity to join us on our show. And who better than the man who still makes many hearts flutter – Shahrukh Khan? There was only a teensy weensy problem - none of us have the clout to invite Shahrukh Khan.

But as true improvisers, we took a leaf from the Khannas who wanted their Diwali party to pop and sparkle and we made do with a cheap imitation – a Malayali version of SRK. 

Karthik tries to smuggle in something brown and something white and when caught, offers to gift it to the taciturn Immigration officer and cop. 
He might have escaped the long hands of the law, but he is serving life sentence with a shrew of a wife who shreds him to bits while the hapless film maker is dreaming about food. All this and much more in our 70th episode!

The tribe is taking a break for a while. We will see you in 2022, with a revamped version of the show – which will continue to be unknown, unplanned, and of course, unscripted!

Happy Halloween to you all! And commiserations for those of you who need to attend parties. My least favorite part is getting into conversations with groups who are already talking. There's never really a smooth way to get into such a conversation, or so I thought. The rest of the tribe decided I needed a lesson.

In the acting profession, directors have been known to be... how do you say, difficult. They all have particular styles of directing, some more specific, some less. And a whole range of those styles are on display here. Learns yours today!

And of course, we also remember that sometimes, less is more. Watch a movie in 2x, no movie exists that isn't improved by doing this. Especially if they're educational videos. Turns out that's applicable to improv as well.

All this and more on our show that's unknown, unplanned and Unscripted!

Climate change is real, despite those news channels that tell you it itsn't. One such channel, our very own Mox News, shows you exactly how these channels operate. The process may surprise you!

Who said Tinder and other dating apps were only for the new generation? People above 60 also deserve love, happiness and all the other things not usually found on Tinder. Watch as Karthik and Hari guide you on the exhilarating journey of dating after 60. Deadly Information Today!!!

And if you ever fear you'll forget what to say next while on stage, learn from Robert how to turn a potentially catastrophic forgetting of your lines into an epic chase after a girlfriend who spurned him. The lengths we go to sometimes...

Requesting a bank loan is probably one of the most stressful things you could experience. The bank manager doesn't want to sanction a loan, the client wants as much money as they can get - it's set up to be a tense situation from the off. Add to this that anything other than the most polite behaviour is frowned upon, and you're all set to dance. Hari isn't great at dancing, and on this evidence, neither is Jay.

Slightly higher on the list of stressful activities is wedding planning. It's even worse if the wedding planner is a member of your close family. Fortunately, you don't have to pay them. Unfortunately, you can't fire them. Fortunately, you probably see less of them after the wedding. Unfortunately, you'll see them at every family occasion.

And imagine getting married on a day that a pair of superheroes won't even save the world. You guys had one job...

Every day is a new adventure. To be more precise, the kind of adventure made famous by movies like Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Poltergeist and the like. In other words, it can be quite terrifying.

Facing the unknown and the unexpected is what improv is all about, as demonstrated to great effect by Prateek and Karthik. Rashmi and Hari find ways to integrate random inputs into scenes, and finally all the tribe find themselves switching in and out of a scene as fluidly as they can. Learning to cope with the unknown and unknowable is a great asset to get through the times we live in, so what are you waiting for? Dive in! And remember to join in at our open jamming sessions every Sunday!

All right, are you ready for a different kind of show? In honor of International Podcast Day, we got all our tribe members to show up and put on a show. The best part was that the tribe members had no idea that we had planned this. It truly opened some of our eyes as to what Unplanned, Unknown and Unscripted really means!

In addition to our usual gig, we also had a little chat with all of our tribe members, sharing with each other how the art of Improv has touched our lives in a very challenging time. We'll be releasing that as a special episode soon, so stay tuned.

Our latest round of cocktails throws up several surprises - it seems as though some forget that electric and water bills need to be paid after a few rounds have gone down. It really was a fun experience, listening to our latest members, Benjamin, Kalpak, Anita and Sudha mix it up with our usual veterans.

We also have a fun press conference where the person giving it has no idea who he is, only that he's answering very specific questions about an event he's unaware of. Watch the tribe try (and succeed) in confounding Hari (that's me). He would make a great politician, even if he does say so himself!

You'd think artists and therapists would get along. After all, they're both obsessed with imaginary stuff  reading between the lines. Watch what happens when an artist decides he needs some therapy, and they decide to do a bit of a deep dive into something they would have rather left alone.  

Cocktails at a bar are a huge scam, even more so when you find the vodka has been replaced by water. See how Karthik and Hari deal with bartender Prateek, while stepping gently over the word limit set by the sadistic Roma.

And as always, whenever I'm in the mood for philosophy, I always find it useful to ask myself - Phil or Sophie? Listen to the tribe deal with this conundrum as they rip every argument into pieces in a dazzling display of rhetoric. Hey, I never accused any of them of brilliance...

Interviews often bring out the most illuminating insights. Some of the best things came out of an interview. This isn't one of them. This one tries to bring out the animalistic side of politics, and we succeed... I think.

Customer service can be a difficult experience. Here, you get to see both sides of the coin, angry customers, angry customer care execs, generally angry people. While unpleasant in real life, it just couldn't be funnier here.

And the phenomenon known as catfishing, where someone you meet online pretends to be someone they're not. Meeting a catfish in real life can be a surreal experience. See how Prateek and Hari deal with just such a situation in as few words as they could.

And finally, sometimes, the best advice comes from the most unexpected sources. Like prima donna actors who really can't take direction from a newbie director. Thanks to them, you will learn that buds do grow on trees, and that water is precious!

If there's one mantra I can't stand in real life, it's Mark Zuckerberg's "Move fast and break things". Because of people who actually think this is a good idea, I guess some of us have jobs at DIT, so I really shouldn't complain.

When our lives feel like they're breaking down, who do we call? The sane ones among us would call a therapist. Luckily, we're all out of sanity here at DIT, so we're taking the DIY approach. Whether it's roofs or your internet router, someone here can fix it. Sometimes they may even work after being fixed. However, we provide no guarantees. So join us as we try to put the pieces together. Heck, even this old VCR could work!

Ever been to an Art Exhibition at a gallery? I haven't, and I think they're pretty stuffy with pretentious phrases tossed around like live grenades. I don't think any of us have either, but if all those movies and TV shows glamorizing artists are to be believed, this is probably how it goes down.

I've known quite a few people who are terrified of speaking on stage. And this next scene will do them absolutely no favors. Enjoy our brand new game, which somehow turns into the nightmare scenario for all those who fear the stage.

And we end with my personal favorite phrase; "That's not right." And we proceed to rip everything everyone else says to ribbons. Need I say more?
