Remember the Pretentious Movie Reviews on YouTube? Good. Now forget them. That was just a warm-up to comic Biswa Kalyan Rath’s full comedy prowess. The comedian has moved up a few notches since his YouTube glory days and is using his IIT-Bombay education, along with his knowledge of mathematics, language and life, to make jokes that have never been cracked before. He recently released his comedy special, Biswa Mast Aadmi, to rave reviews, with which he toured every pocket in India. Soon after, he released 'Laakhon Mein Ek', a surprisingly dark web-series on the IIT coaching industry. One of the most-followed comedians in the country, Biswa’s angry rant-styled delivery and his unique perspective turns every topic he touches into comedy gold, making audiences crack up instantly. The stand-up comedian, writer, actor, size-zero enthusiast and blogger, has done countless shows across all sorts of venues in the country and has managed to garner 14+ million views on YouTube. Need we say more?
Can businessmen be funny? Yes. Meet Atul Khatri, a middle-aged businessman-turned-comedian who now makes a living making people laugh harder than they ever have. A former member of one of the country's leading comedy collectives, East India Comedy, Atul has often been spotted on their YouTube series like EIC Outrage, and specials such as EIC vs Bollywood. Bringing his 40+-year-old perspective with every show, he performs regularly at comedy clubs and does private shows in India and abroad. The comedian has showcased his skills at the prestigious Utrecht International Comedy Festival in the Netherlands and Belgium, and at the 8th Annual Hong Kong International Comedy Festival in 2014. CNN-IBN recently rated him as one of the Top 20 Comedians in India to Watch Out For, post winning the competition CEOs Got Talent.
Kumar Varun is a member of Random Chikibum, a comedy collective with fellow comedian Rahul Subramanian. Self-described as "a group of over-enthusiastic, furniture-loving, animal-agnostic, clingy individuals on a mission to make no sense", they won the Comedy Hunt on YouTube in 2015, and have a popular office-humour series, Random Daftar, as part of Laughter Games on YouTube. Kumar is a popular feature of several AIB sketches, and has recently forayed into stand-up comedy.
Sumaira Shaikh is a writer for comedy collective AIB and a stand-up comedian. Sometimes scary, sometimes funny but always making sense, Sumaira's stand-is memorable and delivered in a stone-faced manner. She has also acted in some of AIB's sketches, on YouTube.
