Right now, it’s hard to stay motivated. With all that’s happening around our morale requires constant uplifting. Even a teeny tiny bit of encouragement is appreciated these days and personally, we love how Indian stand up comedians are helping us sail through the crisis.

They make us smile, share positivity, and lend a hand whenever needed.  Even a fractional glimpse of them on our feed is a welcoming sight. That’s the life of a stand up comedian. Let’s have a look at these funny people and follow them to loosen up & add much-needed laughter to your routine.

How can we not start by talking about Vir Das? The ace comic and actor has been regular in hosting online charity gigs during the lockdown and in his Netflix special we witnessed behind the scenes of this crazy mind. His charismatic wit, sensible humour, and sarcastic optimism blended in cynicism is delightful and cracks us through the screens.

Not exactly a stand up comic, but Ankush Bahugauna is hilarious AF. The talented influencer is known for his humbleness and desi humour (sapollas) and his followers go gaga over him in every live video.

Recently, Bassi opened up about reduced pay from corporates and low turn-ups in online shows, but this hasn’t stopped the ace comic from performing. He recently uploaded a YT video on roommates, which is extremely hilarious and pleasing.
