Karan Talwar is a Stand-up Comedian from Mumbai, India. He spent a decade in the United States where he gained
experience and lost all his hair. After graduating with a useless degree in Business, Karan returned to Mumbai and began
experimenting with comedy. Karan can be slightly grotesque and even politically incorrect at times but he does not hate anyone, except those who takes things too seriously.
Azeem Banatwalla is an engineer who decided to show I.T. the finger in order to have some fun in life. He`s a travel writer now, who loves embarking on exotic vacations and epic week-long road trips (like driving along Juhu Beach during Ganesh Visarjan). He believes that love is blind. Mostly because his girlfriend thinks he looks like Naseeruddin Shah.
Amit is known as `The married guy` in the stand-up comedy circuit. After two kids and one marriage, he realized it couldn`t get any worse and took to comedy. He dedicates all his jokes to his wife. Comedy gives him the opportunity to share his pains with the world and earn some money in the process. He is also the Host for Grandmasters of Comedy, one of the longest running Stand Up Comedy shows in India.
Rohan Joshi is a stand-up comedian, writer, columnist, and occasional screenwriter. He used to be a full-time journalist, and it was this strong background in the highest form of Indian comedy that there is, that inspired him to quit, and pursue comedy full-time. From opening for Vir Das to performing at the Fringe Festival, Edinburgh in 2011, Rohan has spent the last few years performing around India, and indeed, around the world. When he`s not doing stand-up at comedy-clubs or for corporate clients, he`s a member of Weirdass Comedy, India`s first and foremost comedy consultancy, and improv troupe, the Cardinal Bengans. He is also a humour-columnist for the Mid-Day, one of Mumbai`s largest tabloids. As a stand-up comedian, Rohan`s material is political, observational, and adult in its sensibilities. Note however that ``adult`` does not always mean mature. Rohan resents the suggestion that he might in fact be mature. TIME Magazine put Rohan at #1 on their 100 Most Influential People Who Might Lie About TIME Magazine Statistics List, and Newsweek calls Rohan Huh? Who?
