Remember the Pretentious Movie Reviews on YouTube? Good. Now forget them. That was just a warm-up to comic Biswa Kalyan Rath’s full comedy prowess. The comedian has moved up a few notches since his YouTube glory days and is using his IIT-Kharagpur education, along with his knowledge of mathematics, language, and life, to make jokes that have never been cracked before. He recently released his comedy special, Biswa Mast Aadmi, to rave reviews, with which he toured every pocket in India. Soon after, he released Laakhon Mein Ek, a surprisingly dark web-series on the IIT coaching industry. One of the most-followed comedians in the country, Biswa’s angry rant-styled delivery and his unique perspective turn every topic he touches into comedy gold, making audiences crack up instantly. The stand-up comedian, writer, actor, size-zero enthusiast, and blogger, has done countless shows across all sorts of venues in the country and has managed to garner 36+ million views on YouTube. Currently, Biswa is part of a panel of judges in Comicstaan, a nine episode series, to mentor and find India’s next comic sensation! Need we say more?

Please note: The majority of the show will be performed in Hindi.
