Two lonely people sitting on a sandy beach next to a sapphire blue sea. Romantic? Yes. Entertaining? No. It’s difficult to see the fun side of life when you’re stuck in a soddy sandpit surrounded by people who function and think only in black and white. Lo and behold, an idea was birthed.

Big Pen is here to make people laugh. Smile. Giggle. Chuckle. Snort (with laughter that is, we take no responsibility for anything else you may put up your nose).

We aim to meet the dearth of English language humour in Pakistan and subsequently bridge the gap between that considered acceptable and that which is frowned upon. All the while, respecting boundaries that are rational and pragmatic to the educated mind.

It does not matter how good or bad a sense of humour you have. What matters is that you have something to say which will bring about a bit of levity in an increasingly dour world.

We shall be posting new artciles every Friday, so be sure to check back or subscribe and receive notifications via Email.

Last, but certainly not least, we’d like to thank Haris Akram for designing our logo.
