Stand Up by Nikesh Shukla

The Blurb On The Back:

Here’s what you need to know about me: I’m seventeen and a comedy god … in waiting.  TBC and all that.  But I know I’m pretty funny.  I have two and a half terms left before going to uni, so if I want to try stand-up, it’s now or never.

More than anything in the world, Madhu wants to be a stand-up comedian, but her parents are rooting for her to do something sensible that involves uni and a law degree.

Just as she thinks they’re probably right, a clip of Madhu goes viral and a comedy legend offers her the chance of a lifetime.  It feels like all her dreams are coming true … until Madhu becomes the punchline.

Can Madhu stand up for what she believes is right and keep everyone she loves laughing?
