StandUp Comedy

Stand-Up Comedy was defined to me by The Great Indian Laughter Challenge in 2006. It gave a new way to Stand-Up comedy. After that show more and more people started making career in Stand-Up comedy. Lots of talented comedians like Sunil Pal, Raju Srivastav, Sudesh Lahiri, Kapil Sharma etc came out of that show. As a child I was fond of that show. I still remember that I used to mimic Sunil Pal, Raju Srivastav and Naveen Prabhakar in my growing age. All these Stand-Up comedians enjoyed their period of fame. They were replaced by newer ones as the time passed. At the moment comedians Kapil Sharma, Bharti, Krishna & Sudesh are ruling the small screen. The Great Indian Laughter Challenge took Stand-Up comedy to the next level and gave us some great comedians who makes our day with their jokes.

The great Indian laughter challenge and all was way back in 2006 but today we are living in the world of internet & social media & we have totally different set of Stand-Up comedians who rule this world. Actually today we have two different types of Stand-Up comedians. One who rule small screen or television and the other type of Stand-Up comedians are those who rule the internet and social media. I joined twitter in 2010 and the people I followed first on twitter were Jose Covaco, Gaurav Kapur & Vir Das. I followed them first because I am a huge fan of their comic tweets. Slowly I came across the All India Bakchod group on twitter.

I followed Rohan Joshi, Tanmay Bhat & Khamba on twitter through Vir Das & Jose Covaco. I came across the videos of All India Bakchod through Rohan, Tanmay & Khamba. We all know how good All India Bakchod is when it comes to Stand-Up comedy. Apart from them there is Abish Mathew who I think as good as AIB. There are other comedians as well like Kanan Gill, The Viral Fever etc who rules the internet. They made their identity after 2010 via social media platforms like twitter, facebook and youtube. Apart from these social media platforms there are websites as well which are encouraging Stand-Up comedy. Last night I came across one such website. is a heaven for party animals. It is basically a website which provides you information about parties and nightlife. It provides you the information about great party destinations in the cities like Bangalore, Delhi, Pune, Mumbai, Kolkata & Hyderabad. It provides you party calendar, party guide, party hotspots, information about featured parties etc. It also teaches you how to make cocktails. If you are new in any of the above mentioned cities and you want to find a place to party then is the perfect site for you. has different section altogether for Stand-Up comedy. In that section you will find information about all the leading Stand-Up comedians in India who rules the internet. Apart from that there are articles on Stand-Up comedy from all over the world. Moreover there are outlets mentioned in that section in which these comedians perform their acts. Above that they are hunting for the next Stand-Up comedian. has organised comedy hunt on youtube. If there is comedian in you & waiting for an opportunity then here it is you can be next comedy superstar. Just log on to, Kanan Gill & AIB is waiting for you to guide how to participate in this contest. I mean what else a website can do to encourage Stand-Up comedy. Laughter is the medicine & I have found the dispensary to get that medicine daily.
