The show features four superheroes from Bangalore, who all have basically one superpower- to make you laugh till you drop. It is a one-of-a-kind comedy show which promises to tickle your funny bone.

Pooja Vijay, a Tamilian who identifies as a Bangalorean, decided to pursue comedy after she realised that she needed a hobby other than Facebook stalking. Through her comedy, she brings a fresh perspective to life as a stutterer (yes, just like the Nescafe ad!), the funny side of being South Indian living in Delhi and her failed attempts at romance. She has performed in multiple cities across India including Hyderabad, Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai and Kochi. She has been featured in leading media platforms such as NDTV, Femina and leading newspapers.

Vikash Paul is a Chartered Accountant by qualification and a stand-up comedian by passion. In last 3 years of doing professional stand-up comedy he has shared stage with big names in Indian stand-up comedy scene like Zakir Khan, Kanan Gill, Kunal Kamra, and Kenny Sebastian. With close to 150 shows, he has become a regular face at popular comedy venues across Chennai, Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi and Kolkata. Popularly known as 'joke writing wizard', a commerce graduate from SRCC (Delhi), he brings to the table a very refreshing
