While most of us use Snapchat to post an update about the cutest neighbourhood cat that won’t give us any attention, our favourite comedians are making far more creative use of the platform. Take for example, one of the most popular comedians out there, John Ruben. He loves entertaining his Snapchat audience by playing different characters, right from Julia Roberts, to businessmen ordering meals. And then there’s Brittany Furlan, whose hilarious, regular Snapchat updates feature her cute, confused canines—something we can’t get enough of!
What’s great about comedians being on Snapchat is the fact that we get to enjoy their humour from wherever we are, and can be surprised with it at any point of our day.
Here are 6 Indian comedians we get our daily hahas from:
- 1.Kenny Sebastian (@knowkenny)
- 2. Biswa Kalyan Rath (@biswamastaadmi)
- 3. Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay)
- 4. Mallika Dua (@mallikadua)
- 5. Varun Thakur (@varoonthakoor)
- 6. Rohan Joshi (@rohanjoshi22)
1.Kenny Sebastian (@knowkenny)
The man with the sardonic face, Kenny Sebastian has become one of the most loved comics in the country. He has won over millions with well-crafted irony as well as his seemingly apparent ‘rich people’ complex. Just like his jokes on stage, Kenny’s Snapchat updates are rib-tickling, and full of sarcasm. Oh, and just like most of us, he loves filters.
2. Biswa Kalyan Rath (@biswamastaadmi)
Always one for dramatic gestures and full of energy, Biswa has carved out a sizeable niche for himself in the world of Indian stand-up. We love Biswa’s Snapchat updates for their self-deprecating humour and his absolute hate for travel. And what’s funny is that he’s always travelling. So, if you aren’t a fan of travelling either, follow @biswamastaadmi on Snapchat, and gear up for some non-stop entertainment.
3. Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay)
Fresh humour and great acting skills, these words best sum up Tanmay Bhat. Like all of us, Tanmay’s an avid Snapchat user, and what’s great about his stories is that he sometimes addresses relevant issues like sexism and feminism, and giving them his own well-meaning humorous touch. Take for example the time he slammed the absurd concept of being ‘friendzoned’ with the infamous Snapchat ‘bee’ filter—what better way to talk about what’s actually relevant, right? Especially when you give people a good laugh.
4. Mallika Dua (@mallikadua)
Mallika Dua is an Indian comic of notable skill and an even bigger following. She has gained loads of popularity through her Snapchat character, Makeup Didi. We’ve all been through a couple of makeup-related disasters ourselves, haven’t we? Well, Mallika Dua’s Snapchat updates can certainly remind you about them in the most hilarious ways possible. Oh, and we could all learn a thing or too about filters from Mallika—she’s insanely good at using them.
5. Varun Thakur (@varoonthakoor)
Co-founder at SNG Comedy, Varun has managed to fill his Snapchat updates with his sublime form of comedy. His Snapchat stories are super-funny, as he plays the Ed-Hardy loving, struggling actor, Vicky Malhotra. The comedian exploits filters, while acting out the daily struggles of Vicky Malhotra, right from the character’s love life to stuff that happens at work.
6. Rohan Joshi (@rohanjoshi22)
One of the founders of AIB, Rohan is a hilarious comic and a talented writer, who brings his hilarity to Snapchat as well. As a total cat-person, Rohan’s Snapchat updates are overflowing with adorable kitties. One time, Rohan even staged an imaginary conversation between his cats, and undoubtedly, it cracked us up. So, if you’re a cat-lover too, follow @rohanjoshi22, and prepare yourself for a daily dose of comedy and cuteness.
So, there you have it. 6 Indian comedians, and 6 hilarious Snapchat handles to follow. When you’re having a rough day, all you need to do is get on to Snapchat, and laugh away to some minute-by-minute comedy, thanks to these wonderfully entertaining folks.
