Laughter is the best medicine. Why? Not only does it release ‘happy hormones’ in our body but it also makes us feel better about life! But it cannot be denied that making someone laugh is an art and we have got some of the very best in the business for you. Here are 5 stand-up comedians that will leave you laughing out loud.
Dentist turned stand-up comedian, this man endlessly trolls his family in a way that could blow your mind away. With his middle-class jokes that are so relatable, he tickles your funny bones. One of his stand-up specials: Market Down Hai is coming up on Amazon Prime on May 14. It’s all about funny incidents and anecdotes from family and relatives.
The Sakht Launda aka Zakir Khan is one of the best stand-up comedians we ever had. As good as he is with stand-up comedy, he is with poetry and acting. He rose to fame owing to his association with AIB, but his skills didn’t fail to sweep away the hearts of a lot of girls, though he remain ‘sakht’ as we hear.
Anubhav Singh Bassi
Born in a small town, Shivpuri in Madhya Pradesh, Anubhav Bassi has reached the skies. One of the few stand-up comedians with realistic tales and unmatched storytelling skills never cease to make us laugh. Lawyer by qualification, Bassi is a humorist by profession, and certainly the one that can light up anyone’s day.
If you are looking for content which is hilarious and intellectual, Vir Das is your go-to comic. His jokes are deep like the ocean and are deep into the realism of society. You need to sink in each and every joke of his to acknowledge his distinct comedy style. His stand-up specials Vir Das for India, Vir Das: Inside Out and Vir Das: Outside In were massive hits.
One of the founders and co-host of AIB, Aditi is a stand-up comedian, an actor and a writer. She usually jokes about topics that have always been considered taboo. Pretty much vocal about the gender disparity women face, Aditi has subtly created ripples to stop this inequality. We can see Aditi recently in a show called LOL: Hasse to Phasee on Amazon Prime Video and it wouldn’t be wrong to call her an artist who knows how to keep all her audiences happy.
