Published on 8 August, 2018 at 5:52 pm By

The culture of stand-up comedy is trending amidst the Indian audiences of late. Laughter clubs all across the nations are booming like never before. It’s a common consensus that stand-up comedians draw from their personal experiences to form content. And we have stand-up comedians coming from all walks of life. But have you ever heard of a maid turned stand-up comedian? We are sure most of you did not. Hell, even we didn’t before we came across Deepika Mhatre.

Deepika led a routine life. She cooked for 4-5 elite families, sold jewelry in train and took care of her own house. But now, things are a little different for her.

Maid turned stand-up comedian Deepika decided to draw from her own and the experiences of fellow maids to build a comic routine. This is what the 43-year-old told the Guardian about her experience:

“Although my employers were mostly nice to me, I used to hear horror stories from other maids. I used my experiences for my routine, like other comedians.”

 

To many, it may be weird to hear a maid’s funny take on her employers and her experiences with them. But this unconventional change is a welcome one in the comedy circuit. Before taking up stand-up comedy, Deepika used to head home post completing her work. And then she’d stay home and prep for the next day.

But now instead of staying home, maid turned stand-up comedian heads back into the city for her stand-up gig. When asked if it was tough to manage everything, she said:

“It’s tough but I don’t want to give it up. It’s the first opportunity I’ve ever had to be someone.”



 

 

Isn’t it refreshing? Women stand-up comedians are sparse, to begin with. And to see women from all cultures and walks of life rising up to the platform is amazing. Aditi Mittal a famous comedian who encourages new talent welcomed Deepika on her web-show Bad Girls.

When asked if she is worried about how this will affect her work as a cook, this is what maid turned stand-up comedian says:

“No madam can scare me. My struggles in life have made me strong. Appearing on stage has added to my confidence now, so no, I don’t fear any repercussions. In fact, some madams who bumped into me near the lifts spoke politely to me for the first time. Before, I had been invisible.”
