K for Kenny Sebastian

Kenny Sebastian was my introduction to the Indian stand-up comedy world.  The first video that I watched on his YouTube channel was about the behavior of Indian middle-class parents at a restaurant. I was hooked to the videos there for the next four days. His content, mostly delivered in English, is so full of expressions and body movements that it feels as good as watching him live in action. Kenny is also a talented singer and a few of his old acoustic cover videos capture him playing the guitar while singing songs. He does sit-down live comedy through ‘Chai time with Kenny’ series where he interacts with a live audience. Kenny has acted in comedy sketches, been a part of comedy shows like Comedy Central and humor series as Star Boyz covering the journey of three south Indian boys in space. He is also into vlogs that give a sneak-peek into his personal life and track his travel diaries.

Kenny’s content is easily relatable and draws inspiration from the simple things of life making his humor effortless. He has a solo stand-up special ‘Don’t Be That Guy’ and a 7-episode original series called ‘Die trying’ on Amazon Prime. He has been a part of Comicstann – Season 1. This multi-talented performer runs a podcast and has also launched his own brand of merchandise.

This is the 11th post in the Blogchatter A2Z series under the theme ‘Laugh in the time of Corona.’ Stay tuned to know who gets featured tomorrow in my post for L.

Currently, I am pursuing a one-year MFA in creative writing course from the Writer's Village University, U.S. 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 two-and-a-half years in blogging 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 four-and-a-half-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 channelize emotions through words and pictures. 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.

  2. Yayy…finally my favourite! Love that apart from comic sketches, he does this comic strip ‘Chip and Ken’ on Insta and recently he started a series on successful people with unconventional professions.
    Really liked your post.

  3. Omg, I love this guy! I have watched almost all of his videos. Like you, the first video I watched was that of the middle class Indian family. My college bestie showed me that video and just like that, I got addicted! It’s always been a great wish of mine to go to his live show. Unfortunately, that hasn’t happened yet. Hopefully, that’ll happen once we are done with this lockdown.
