Tanmay Bhat

One of the founding members of All India Bakchod (AIB), possibly the most popular comedy group in the country right now, Tanmay Bhatt stands out because of his distinct look and his inane ability to make it fun of himself!

Kanan Gill got famous with Biswa Kalyan Rath for their ridiculously funny ‘Pretentious Movie Review’. He has quite the fan following, especially with the ladies, and fill ups shows whenever he tours.

Progressive, pithy, and ridiculously funny, Varun Thakur takes to different social mediums with his funny antics. His videos are mostly available on SnG Comedy’s YouTube channel, and you should definitely check him out!

Aditi Mittal

One of the few women in the comedy industry in India, Aditi Mittal doesn’t shy away from blatantly talking about women related topics and forcing people to come to terms with it. Follow her @awryaditi for some kickass stuff.

Abhishek Upmanyu

New kid on the block, Abhishek has the funniest mannerisms and his delivery of his witty jokes is what makes him stand out. He has a few hilariously relatable videos up and we’re eager for more!

Biswa Kalyan Rath

Biswa first got popular with the Pretentious Movie Reviews, but has since taken off into his own brilliantly unique sense of comedy. His self deprecating jokes and mannerisms is what makes him charming on another level.

Papa CJ

Papa CJ is an internationally popular face for Indian stand-up and was the first Indian comedian to be invited to perform at the Just for Laughs festival in Canada in 2009. He’s performed a crazy number of shows and isn’t slowing down.

Another stellar female addition to the comedy industry in India, Neeti Palta‘s feminist jokes and lively presence are much appreciated.

Zakir Khan

The winner of Comedy Central’s India’s Best Stand Up Comedian, Zakir Khan has also been on air with AIB. He has a down to earth, self deprecating, sense of humour and puts up some pretty original reviews.
