Two youngsters in their early twenties, Abhyudaya Mohan and Gautami Kawale are the brains behind one of India’s freshest, finest and funniest channels on YouTube, Slayy Point. These millennials cover topics relevant to the younger generation layered with ample doses of humor. They have a unique style of using social commentary while roasting cringeworthy content. At times, they also put up videos like ‘Getting Trolled By Subscribers’ using self-deprecating humor. The light-hearted comedy balanced with their priceless expressions makes their videos a delight to watch. Most of their content is found in the trending section of YouTube after release.
They have hosted YouTube fanfest Red Carpet 2019. They have also collaborated with Bollywood celebrities like Rajkummar Rao and cricketers like DJ Bravo as part of their interview series and YouTubers like Captain Nick and Flying Beast for their videos. These talented creators were recently invited for interaction by the YouTube global office in the US. The duo took a step further and uploaded a few ridiculously funny travel vlogs covering their journey and experiences in the states.
This is the twenty-fifth post in the Blogchatter A2Z challenge based on the theme ‘Laugh in the time of Corona’. Stay tuned to know the details of the stand-up comedian getting featured in my last post for Z tomorrow.

After Captain Nick and Mostly Sane, the next lady YouTuber spreading laughter and awareness related to issues/taboos that women face through her videos is Anisha Dixit. Anisha is more popularly known as Rickshawali though recently, she has re-branded her YouTube channel to her name. Born in Germany, this Mumbai-based witty content-creator is famous for creating a handful of characters in her comedy sketch videos. Dadi is one of the most loved characters though it is Anisha playing all the roles in different get-ups in her comedy v/s videos. She has immortalized the words ‘Hai Daiyya’ through her unique way of delivering the phrase.
Anisha has collaborated with famous Bollywood stars like Priyanka Chopra, Karthik Aryan, Sara Ali Khan, Rajkummar Rao and well-known YouTubers like Lily Singh, Technical Guruji, Mumbiker Nikhil, Captain Nick among many others. She also uploads funny videos of prank calls to her Youtube colleagues and Bollywood stars. She addresses her followers as ‘rickstars’ who feel delighted by her amusing and entertaining content. But it also worth mentioning that she has faced quite a lot of struggles in life before reaching the zenith of success today. That’s why her straight-talk videos speaking about the journey of her life make her comes across as an honest and straight-forward personality.
Last December, she was invited as part of a panel discussing women empowerment with former American President Barack Obama in Singapore. She also runs a second channel simply Anisha Dixit where she posts about fashion, lifestyle, travel vlogs and other personal content.
This is the twenty-fourth post in the Blogchatter A2Z challenge based on the theme ‘Laugh in the time of Corona’. Stay tuned to know the details of the content creator(s) getting featured in my post for Y tomorrow.
Since we are nearing the end of this challenge, you can read all the posts in this series here. Hope this video makes you chuckle like me.
Creating content that roasts people, movies, performances, and other topics have become a rage for the last couple of years. Carry Minati rose to fame with his videos dissing cringe-worthy content since he was 16-years-old. Though he began posting videos at the age of 10, he rose to success with roast and parody videos. The work of this 21-year-old YouTuber is high in humor quotient though it isn’t devoid of profanity.
Carry Minati aka Ajey Nagar is a content creator, comedian, rapper and gamer. It is not just the choice of words that make his videos fun to watch but it is also his lively expressions and relevant voice modulation that add spark to the fun. Speaking in Hindi, his standard way of introduction ‘to kaise hai aap log?’ in all the videos has become a trademark identity for this talented artist.
Carry is famous for his series of videos roasting Gujjar boys, singer Dhinchak Pooja, singer Om Prakash, self-styled Godman Baba Ram Rahim Singh Insan, shows like Big Boss and Pakistani roadies, and apps like TikTok and Vigo among many others. He also runs a gaming channel Carryislive.
In 2018, he was also invited to interview Tom Cruise and Henry Cavill for their movie Mission: Impossible – Fallout in India. He won the Impactful Influencer of the year in 2019 at the MTV IWM Buzz Digital Awards. In 2019, he also featured in the list of ‘Next Generation Leaders’ worldwide by the TIME magazine.
This is the twentieth post in the Blogchatter A2Z challenge based on the theme ‘Laugh in the time of Corona.’ I will see you tomorrow when I disclose the featured funny man in my post for U.
You can read the previous posts in the series here. Don’t forget to click on his video where Carry roasts a TikTok sensation Rocky.
Aashqeen, who runs a YouTube channel by the same name is known for his brand of comedy videos. While his visual content has a strong North Indian flavor, it is also worth mentioning that he steers clear of profanity or vulgarity in them. His videos revolve around youth-centric themes yet there are subtle messages of body positivity, the need for unity in diversity and also makes an effort to smash gender stereotypes. It isn’t easy creating humorous content around religion but this accomplished creator has managed to bridge the divide. This charming man with a heartwarming smile has immortalized the role of Bhaiyyaji in the Inteqam series, especially in his stunt of using the JCB machine in one of his videos.
While the majority of his videos are of the types of boys v/s girls in various scenarios, he has created quite a few memorable characters like Lul as well. Very recently, he explored the genre of web series with a show called Superstar. Aashqueen has collaborated with big names like Ashish Chanchlani, The Bong Guy aka Kiran Dutta among many others. Barkha Sethi and Dikshant Negi are two actors featured regularly in his videos who also head various departments of his channel.
His inspiring journey from facing failure to achieving success can be viewed as part of the TEDx talks.

Mostly Sane is the official YouTube channel of one of India’s leading YouTube sensations ‘Prajakta Koli.’ Her channel was my introduction to content-driven YouTube shows. This hard-working and super-talented RJ turned YouTuber is a force to reckon with. Her disciplined schedule of uploading videos every Tuesday (real talks), Thursday (sketch comedies based on her observation of people around her) and Saturday (QnA or video interviews with celebrities) makes her one of the most consistent creators as well. She is often found uploading vlogs based on her travel diaries and personal experiences.
She has represented India at the YouTubers ‘Creators for Change’ summit through which she met Michelle Obama recently to discuss on education for girls. Recently, she made her foray into YouTube originals with her show ‘Pretty Fit’ that featured a host of celebrities like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sanya Malhotra and Sumukhi Suresh among others. Prajakta was part of Forbes ’30 under 30′ list in 2019.
While Prajakta has created various characters for her sketch comedies, her most famous creation happens to be a teenager called Montu, introduced as the younger brother of Prajakta in the comedy videos. Montu is so popular that the audience (who Prajakta addresses as Dumdums lovingly) has started asking for Montu special videos now. She has collaborated with the biggest names in Youtube community like Bhuvan Bam, Ashish Chanchchlani, Mumbiker Nikhil and many more.
This is the thirteenth post in the Blogchatter A2Z challenge based on the theme ‘Laugh in the time of Corona’. Stay tuned to know the details of the stand-up comedian getting featured in my post for N tomorrow.
You can read all the posts in this series here. Watch Prajakta play multiple roles in this hilarious video based on the life of a typical middle-class family.
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.
You can read all the posts in the series here. Watch this hilarious video of Kenny that is sure to make you go LOL.
Last year, I came across this channel on YouTube called Captain Nick. Content creator Niharicka Singh who runs this channel posts videos of different formats but most of these are hilarious and ridiculously relatable. She plays multiple characters in her comedy sketches, the most famous among this being Mataji. There are comedy videos, sketches, vlogs and a couple of challenges but the intrinsic factor that connects all of these is the underlying humor.
If there’s one aspect that makes her stand out, it is her straightforward nature and honesty that comes across as her USP in the videos. A former RJ, Captain Nick is ruling the trending list with her characters and content.
This is the third post in the Blogchatter A2Z series under the theme ‘Laugh in the time of Corona’. I hope to see you tomorrow as I reveal the name of the featured artist in the post for D.
