From new kids on the block, to veterans of the field (so to say), Indian stand-up comedians have been making us laugh for a long time.
But amidst all their trademark punchlines and funny jokes, Indian stand-up comedians have raised comments on issues that are relevant to the society, and which people, especially those in prominent positions, are not speaking enough about.
Here are thirty comments that prove that more times than not, the comedians in India make the most sense!
1. Vir Das on paparazzi.
2. Rohan Joshi on extreme rivalry between political party followers.
3. Vipul Goyal on the change in tax structure.
