When did you realize that you are funny and you need to let the world know that you are funny?
I started to believe that a few years ago but I feel like the world isn’t ready for me yet.
Share any memorable event or instance?
I once performed jokes about killing babies at a kid’s birthday party of course I didn’t get paid.But performing at NIT Durgapur to a crowd of 1000 odd students was definitely one of the best nights of my life.
Have you ever been booed on stage?
No, not on stage but at a family gathering. It was mostly my mom and dad.
What advice would you give new comedians just starting out?
Don’t believe every advice a comedian gives. Just do what you believe in. (Very valuable advice given to me by another famous comedian)
What happens if people do not laugh at your jokes? & Why Laughter is important?
I judge them for being stupid…. Just kidding, I go back home and cry & Laughter is important because it keeps us sane in a mad world.
