Host: Diptarka Ghosh: He is a Bengali stand-up comedian from Bangalore who staged his first set on the 9th of December, 2014. Popular for his Youtube videos with infamous artists, Kanan Gill, Kenneth Sebastian and Biswa Kalyan Rath, he is popular amongst the college crowd, that relates well to his humour. Being an aspiring musician, a photographer and a videographer, Diptarka is also known to sing about funny things on stage. Being an improvisational comedian, he has shared the stage with the comedy-scene biggies - Atul Khatri, Zakir Khan and Jeeveshu Ahluwalia, to name a few. Having performed in Bangalore and other cities in the country, he is sure to leave the audience in splits!
Rupen Paul - A frustrated middle-class south Indian who did not do engineering, not because he was too cool to follow the crowd but mainly because he didn't get enough marks. His jokes can find him making fun of the absurdities and oddities of life as experienced by people growing in middle-class homes. He is the winner of the 2014 Comedy Open Mic organized by Big Mic and has performed shows across Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai and Pune.
Pooja Vijay: India's first stuttering comedienne who has hosted a number of shows in various venues across the country. She is known for her self-deprecating humour and political incorrectness. A Chemical Engineer who hasn’t managed to find chemistry with anyone yet. She 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 an Indian studying in Europe and her failed attempts at being politically correct. She has performed in multiple cities across India and has been featured on leading media platforms such as NDTV, Femina and leading newspapers.
Shrirupa Sengupta: A stand-up comedienne who feels life must be laughed at, every minute. Her sense of humour is confused, quirky and unabashedly self-centred.
