A for Amit Tandon

While Ashish Chanchlani would have been a bigger name for the 17 million followers he entertains on his YouTube channel, my personal favorite happens to be Amit Tandon aka The Family Man.

Amit Tandon

Amit’s jokes are centered around a typical middle-class family and are generally devoid of abusive language, making him a perfect choice as a family entertainer. He was one of the first stand-up comics to debut with a  show on Netflix and has a huge audience base across the globe. You can catch his hilarious videos on his YouTube channel here.

Here’s one of my favorite videos. Have fun.

This is the first post of the Blogchatter A2Z challenge 2020 under the theme ‘Laugh in the time of Corona’. See you tomorrow as I unravel who gets featured in the post for B.


Author: Sonia Chatterjee

Who am I? An erstwhile banker turned blogger/writer/author. Any qualifications? A Post-Graduate degree in Chemistry followed by a second Post-Graduate Diploma in Management. I completed a one-year MFA in creative writing course from the Writer's Village University, U.S. in Dec 2020. Though I must admit that I am still trying to figure out how and when I can connect all these dots. Have I done any real work? If two years in market research, six years in banking as a branch head, three-plus years of blogging, writing, and publishing a book can be considered as real work, then yes! Where do I live? After spending life like a nomad for sixteen years in Delhi, Bangalore & Mysore, I am back to where it all started from - Kolkata. My favorite things - Books, coffee, travel, food, and my five-year-old son. What is this blog about? Through Sonia's musings, I intend to explore writing in various genres, create social awareness, spread laughter, and give words to emotions. Anything for readers? You can check out my book 'Deal of Death' on Amazon Kindle. If you like fast-paced thrillers, this Detective fiction introducing the woman sleuth, Raya Ray could turn out to be your perfect weekend read.

  1. I recently came across one of Amit Tondon’s stand up comedy shows. And believe me I truly enjoyed it. I am not much into stand up comedy. I can’t laugh non stop. “family entertainer”..thats the correct word for him.

  3. Just the other day I watched a show on Prime. In the end, he introduced his family too. I think hats where we connect with him..the family man.

  4. These days, I find that stand up comedians show a more realistic mirror to the world than even politicians and world leaders… they are insightful. Add some biting wit and its a joy to watch.

  6. I am a huge fan of stand up comedy. Internationally my favorite is Trevor Noah. In India, I have been following the comedy scene for long. I like Amit Tandon for his clean comedy. However, Biswa is my favorite.

  7. I have seen the video before. I enjoyed watching it again. I did not know this guy’s name was Amit Tandon. My favourite stand up comics are Kunal Kamra and Varun Grover though they use very coarse language. Amit Tandon is good and thanks for sharing a cheerful video.

    I have watched some of his older videos and some clips from his Netflix special, and yes, it’s a joy to watch them.
