From a corporate manager to a top stand-up comedian, how has your journey been?
It has been difficult and fun at the same time. I love the art of comedy and so I have been able to go through the struggle. However, leaving a consistent salary for the financial inconsistency has been the biggest challenge.
Any hilarious experience in your comedy career you want to share?
I did a corporate show where most people in the audience were nodding and chuckling at best. I thought it was a horrible show. When it ended, about 10 people from the audience congratulated me and told me they had a lot of fun. It was tragic and hilarious at the same time.
One thing you regret after being a stand-up comedian?
I need more money. Will you guys pay me for this?
While scripting your show, what are the key areas on which you focus?
I try to write jokes which hopefully have a meaning beyond the laughter but as long a joke gets a laughter, it’s cool. A good joke makes people laugh.
Your purpose in life?
To make the world an inspired and visibly happier place.
Who is your favourite stand-up comedian?
Carlin is dead. I love watching Bill Burr right now. Indian comedians – Zakir Khan, Jeeveshu, Sumit Anand, Vir Das and Papa CJ.
One challenging thing in the comedy world?
To make a brand for yourself. Unless people know you, they don’t care about your comedy.
Comedy for you is?
Medium to make life more bearable.
