Braking Mad – India’s Largest Charity Stand-Up for Dogs


In 2015 VOSD started thinking of a way in which folks who are connected to dogs, and those who are not, come to a place and an experience that is the opposite of dog rescue with its imagery of crippled dying dogs. So we decided to go the other end of the spectrum – stand-up comedy! In the process, we’ve created India’s largest standup-up series for charity.

Barking Mad has had 14 sold out shows headlined by India’s absolutely best standup talent – they are not just stellar artists but gracious enough to support VOSD. These have included Radhika Vaz (Mumbai), Neeti Palta (Delhi), Naveen Richard (Mumbai), Sundeep Rao (Bangalore), Praveen Kumar (Bangalore), Sanjay Manaktala (Bangalore),  supported by a legion of assorted comic geniuses including Kritarth Srinivasan, Satish Perumal, Vamsidhar Bhogaraju, Kjeld Sreshth, Shrirupa Sengupta, Shunky Chugani and many others. Forthcoming artists include Boman Irani, Vir Das & Kenny Sebastian.
