While few years ago, comedy was restricted to Bollywood, the new age stand-up comedians are changing the dynamics with their talent. They are pulling the audiences from movie halls to stand-up events. And our very own ‘mast aadmi’ Biswa Kalyan Rath is much hyped. This tall, lanky figure from Odisha has made the nation fall in love with him with his crazy jokes and anecdotes.
AN IITIAN TURNED COMEDIAN
Born in 1990 in Bhubaneswar, Biswa completed his early education from Odisha and later went to be an IITian at IIT-Kharagpur. A stand-up comedian was born when he decided to quit his job at Oracle and take the unconventional route.
This stand-up comic and the YouTuber knows how to tickle a funny bone while oozing extreme confidence on stage and in his videos. Not just this, he is one of the funniest people on twitter.
Khud ke description main 'sarcastic' likhne waale log sarcastic nahi, wannabe hote hain.

I didn't choose the thug life, the thug life also didn't choose me.

PRETENTIOUS MOVIE REVIEWS
Biswa and Kanan Gill, with their slapstick punches on Bollywood movies in the ‘Pretentious Movie Reviews’ rose to fame as Youtubers. It was post that, that Biswa built a large loyal fan following. If you haven’t yet checked those snarky movie reviews, here’s this video to make you laugh like a maniac!
THE LINK BETWEEN ENGLISH & REPRODUCTION
Biswa Kalyan Rath takes it on his shoulders, the responsibility to enlighten us on how English helps the youth these days to reproduce! Also, India is not just the land of colours, it’s as well a land of funny stereotypes, most of which are inherited and others customised by the cool ones.
THE BIGGEST TROLL IS HIM BEING AN ODIA
The self-proclaimed fattest guy in Odisha, Biswa’s doesn’t mind cracking puns about him and Odisha – his birth land and an outlandish state on the map of India. Many Odias must have mimicked his, “Jibana ta dukho, Sansara ta mohmaya” for the Odia feel!
THE INCEPTION OF NAILCUTTER
Have you ever, in your idle time wondered the story behind the inception of nailcutter? Or are you aware about the fan and blanket disease? We are sure not! Biswa, however, with his honest observations quenches our inquisition about these lifeless yet immensely useful objects. Check out!
A DIG ON CENSORED MATERIALS
Because no one knows what the star in F*CK stands for?! Well, Biswa made it clear that the exclusive star is redundant in his impeccable stand-up, so much for the censored materials that all your awkward moments will seem a waterdown. Here’s his open dig on the dirty jokes.
LAAKHON MEIN EK
While Biswa started off as of the Pretentious Movie Reviews duo, he has inexplicably turned his open mic nights into a cameo in a Netflix movie into an Amazon stand-up special. And now we have ‘Lakhon mein ek.’
Created by Biswa Kalyan Rath, this web series is a story of a kid sent away by his parents to prepare for IIT entrance exams. A dark yet relatable and enjoyable story about the IIT dream, and the life of Akash and many like him. Let ‘Mast Aadmi’ Biswa take you on a fun tour in this series.
Just when you thought it ended, he became one of the judges and mentors in ‘Comicstaan’, a special comic hunt on Amazon Prime.
So, let’s put our jaws together for Biswa Kalyan Rath and fingers crossed hoping more stand-up comics emerge from Odisha.
