L for Kanan Gi(LL)

I discovered Kanan Gill through the hilarious ‘Pretentious movie review’ series that he co-hosted with Biswa Kalyan Rath on his YouTube channel. I found him effortlessly charming in the series of ‘Better Life Foundation’ next created by ‘Them Boxer Shorts’. This good-looking and humourous performer has a unique pace of delivering jokes. In fact, the introduction to his stand-up special on Amazon Prime ‘Keep it Real’ has his friends from the stand-up industry telling him to slow down while speaking.

This multi-talented performer has acted and created sketch comedies like ‘How Insensitive’ and ‘Sketchy Behavior’(with Kenny Sebastian). He made his debut as an actor in the movie ‘Noor’ starring Sonakshi Sinha. He has also been a judge on both the seasons of Comicstann and is now making his debut on Netflix with the solo special ‘Yours sincerely’.

This is the twelfth post in the Blogchatter A2Z challenge based on the theme ‘Laugh in the time of Corona.’ I hope to see you tomorrow as I divulge one of the most talented YouTube creators in my post for M tomorrow.

You can read all the posts in the series here. Watch this video by Kanan Gill that will make you go LOL.

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. 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.

  4. I’ve seen Kanan Gill, Biswa et al perform at Urban Solace in Bangalore way back in 2014 when I lived there. I’ve seen Kanan Gill’s show ‘Keep it real’. Didn’t know he had a show coming up on Netflix. Thanks for your informative blog.
