Humour breaks one's defences and allows people to think, to feel become vulnerable. . When they laugh they become silly, they open up. And in that moment of openness and vulnerability you can put something into their heads - an idea, an opportunity or a brand. Humour is a celebration of Silliness. Silly is what makes baby laugh. You have to become silly to make baby laugh. Karthik shares his views on importance of Standup Comedy in Society and how Stand Up Comedy has become 'cool' for kids & youth. School children aspire to be stand up comics and the time for comedy has arrived. Younger India wants to talk to power through reels , memes and comedy video.  Karthik believes that the clown has true power and influence. You love the person who makes you laugh because you feel they want the best for you. And the emergence of the Clown and the short form videos content has truly changed the rule for customer engagement. To engage with your audience and your customer, you need to be local and relevant. Therefore advertising agencies have to create a medium for customers to participate and co-create a message. Brands have to let consumers drive the brand conversation. The truth is out there and brands need to be authentic and make a genuine effort to drive conversations.  Follow Jagged with Jasravee on Social Media  Youtube Page : https://www.youtube.com/JaggedWithJasravee Facebook Page : https://www.facebook.com/jaggedwithjasravee Instagram : https://www.instagram.com/jagggedwithjasravee/ Podcast Page : https://anchor.fm/jagged-with-jasravee Jagged with Jasravee, is an initiative of Master Sun, the Consulting Brand of Adiva Lifestyle Pvt Ltd.
