Anuradha Menon

Female VJ and stand-up comedian, a trailblazer for women stand-up comics in India


Anuradha Menon, one of the earliest female stand-up comedians, is best known for her alter ego ‘Lola Kutty’ as a VJ on Channel V. Anu created ripples on the small screen as the bespectacled loquacious ‘Lola Kutty’, the funny Malayali VJ who had us in splits with her accent and astute observations and became a phenomenon of the '90s.

Menon grew up in Chennai and gravitated towards advertising after graduating from college, but when the stage beckoned, she succumbed to its charms, even going as far as enrolling in drama school and moving to London for two years. She returned to Mumbai and then decided to make a foray into television while pursuing her passion for theatre.
Anu Menon opened the show for internationally acclaimed comedians, Brad Sherwood & Colin Mochrie, of ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway’ fame during their India tour.
She has performed at many live events & also co-written a two woman sketch comedy show called ‘Rinse Cycle’.
She is also an established theatre actor & has performed internationally.
The play, ‘A Personal War’, in which she had a critical role, won an award at the prestigious Edinburgh Festival.

Awards and Accomplishments

Anuradha’s stage credits also include Lillete Dubey’s ‘Sammy’ and Raell Padamsee’s ‘Noises Off’.

She was also a part of Amazon Prime’s latest stand-up special ‘Wonder Menon’.

Her stand-up act does not stoop to being coarse nor is it dotted with cuss words. It is, instead, subtle humour on everyday incidents in life, including life with her mother-in-law.
