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.

Most of the readers would remember Vir Das for acting in a couple of Bollywood movies (Go Goa Gone, Delhi Belly). But what makes him stand-out is the fact that he is one of the first few successful stand-up comedians taking the craft of humor to an international level. In 2017, he was the first Indian stand-up comedian to debut on Netflix with his show ‘Abroad Understanding.’ The versatile performer has hosted shows across different genres, written for esteemed magazines and repeatedly made it to the Netflix platform with shows like ‘Losing It’ and his latest, ‘For India.’
Known for his strong opinions on politics, society and human behavior, Das is often seen speaking about the uncomfortable and bitter realities coated with a layer of humor. His bold views have subjected him to trolling but the sassy performer has delivered a comeback in his classic witty style.
This is the fourth post in the Blogchatter A2Z series under the theme ‘Laugh in the time of Corona.’ See you tomorrow as I disclose the name featured in the post for E.
You can read the previous posts here. Have fun watching this clip from Vir Das’ first Netflix special.
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’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.
