Comedy and wit influence people of every generation. Many stand-up comedians broke the stereotypes and followed their passion to make people laugh, and be successful in it. Not only they are funny but don’t even shy away from intelligently talking about the realities of life in the guise of humour. It is their thought that goes behind seamlessly blending social reality with funniness is what makes them stand out.
It is a delight to watch them in action and present their intelligently evolved selves in front of the world, in a subtle yet humourous intent to bring a change.
Here are a few quotes by Indian comedians to tickle your funny bone as well as the brains.
