6 Indian Stand-Up comedians who will make you ROFL

Gone are the days when the likes of Kapil Sharma and Bharti Singh used to entertain people with their physical comedy and loud jokes, for our generation demands a comedy which is sensible, amusing and connects with our daily lives.

Strict censorship on TV combined with monetization of YouTube has made Internet an apt platform for rising Indian comedians who will tickle your funny bone.

1. Vir Das

Known for his movies and music, Vir Das is also a terrific stand-up comedian.

His production company is called Weird Ass Comedy which is a clever and funny play on words because Weird Ass sounds a lot like Vir Das.

Most of his stand-up acts take a dig on current affairs and political state of the country.

Check out his 'pot-cast' on YouTube that features him ridiculously disintegrating news headlines.

2. Kenny Sebastian 

Born and raised in a middle-class family, Kenny's childhood is similar to a majority of young people in India which makes his content more relatable and his jokes even funnier.

Kenny's videos are sure to make you laugh with his witty take and comical approach with respect to the daily life of an Indian young adult.

3. Sahil Shah

This young stand-up comedian will cater you with most creative homemade puns and maximum double entendre in his acts.

His childishness may deceive but his jokes will literally cheer you up and improve your mood.

He is popularly known as the founding member of East India Comedy.

Be sure to check out his stand-ups on YouTube and give your mood a boost.

4. Kanan Gill

Kanan Gill's most fame comes from his hilarious 'Pretentious Movie Reviews'.

He won the Punchline Bangalore Competition which kick-started his career.

He has quite a female following as he is both blessed with good looks and a good sense of humour. Along with stand-up comedy, he also creates and acts in short funny videos which can be found on YouTube.

5. Biswa Kalyan Rath

Known for working alongside Kanan Gill in 'Pretentious Movie Reviews' (which by the way y'all should totally check out), he now also performs as a stand-up comedian.

Born and raised in Orissa, he clearly understands the struggle to think multilingually.

His acts mostly mock the conventional behaviour and ways of life which will certainly crack you up.

6. Aditi Mittal

The only female to be featured on this list, Aditi Mittal will make you LOL with her goofy expressions and her inherited Punjabi loudness.

She even acts out characters in her acts. Check out her YouTube Channel to watch her latest video about the Things They Wouldn't Let Me Say and have a good time laughing.
