It is not certain from which artist the start of stand up comedy can be considered in the country, but in the 80s, the name of Johnny Lever was the most popular among the artists whose cassettes of comedy shows started coming. Then Raju Srivastava came. And, after them, the artists who came out of reality shows of television created a buzz. Kapil Sharma took this skill forward and now artists like Zakir Khan, Abhishek Upamanyu, Biswa, Kusha Kapila have contributed a lot in lightening the tense atmosphere. In between, people like Munawar Farooqui and Kunal Kamra also make headlines for their shows being canceled more than the content of their shows. Veer Das is India’s standup comedian, while Meerut’s Anubhav Singh Bassi has become a fast emerging name among stand up comedians of India.
