Laughter is definitely one of the best cures for a long day and there’s nothing like a good stand up special to make you audibly guffaw. Indian comics have certainly proved themselves to be a force to be reckoned with of late, when it comes to the stand up sphere. Be it with their relatability or their fresh perspective to cultural commentary, Indian comedians are able to offer witty and well structured sets that can even prove to be thought provoking as well. And they do it all without shirking out on the amusements.

From Kenny Sebastian to Vir Das, here are some rib tickling stand up specials by the cream of the crop of Indian comedians that should not escape your watchlist.

Kenny Sebastian : Don't Be That Guy
From singing to filmmaking to comedy, Kenny Sebastian is a man of many talents. But the most notable of them all that put him on the map is his stand up skills which would have anyone go from chuckles to roaring laughter with its relatability and cleverness. He brings all of his classic charm and more in his 2017 special Don't Be That Guy. In the almost hour-long special Sebastian gives viewers a peek into his household, his family and ,curiously, why he doesn't consider himself to be a ‘nice guy.’
Kanan Gill: Keep It Real
From a Youtuber to a silver screen star- Kanan Gill certainly would have more than a few stories to tell of his impressive journey. And he does just that in his 2017 special, Keep It Real, fitting in as many witty stories as he can in the hour he gets. And Gill certainly seems to have quite an eventful life, as his stories range from outrageous and outlandish to amusing and relatable, smoothly transitioning between stories without skipping a beat.
Zakir Khan: Kaksha Gyarvi
It would be safe to say that ever since he won Comedy Central's India's Best Stand Up Comedian competition, Zakir Khan has never looked back. Kaksha Gyarvi is the comedian’s second hour long stand up special and he lays his heart on his sleeve with his potent performance. Khan takes viewers back to his childhood days, reminiscing about all the things, the good and the bad,that made him who he is. With his witty recollections, he also uses the opportunity to impart some important life lessons as well.
Vir Das: For India
Vir Das is definitely not one to hold back on punches in his comedic routines, as the past controversies he has raked up can attest to. In his 2020 special For India, Das takes audiences on a trip across the country and culture, acting as their own personal tour guide. Rather than give a surface level commentary, he delves into the very essence of India that lies in the everyday, touching upon everything from Bollywood to biscuits. He also ventures into some hard hitting elements as well, addressing topics such as colourism and racism in his set.
One Mic Stand
A fresh spin on the stand up comedy scenario, One Mic Stand sees comedians turn coaches as they teach novices to take the stage and deliver a stand up routine. On the show, several celebrities, well-known for their prowess in every field but stand up, are given the opportunity to try their hand at comedy. But they are not alone, as several of India’s well known comics lend a helping hand to coach the celebrities with their routines. The show has had well known figures take the stage in its two seasons including Taapsee Pannu, Richa Chadha, Shashi Tharoor, Karan Johar and more.
