A self proclaimed "analog guy in a digital world", Shamik spends most of his waking hours staring at computer and smart phone screens, blissfully ignorant about his incredible hypocrisy. His comedy involves rants about various topics with a consistently low level of background research.
He has written codes in C and C++, and he got the output as '346 errors found','system corrupted','somebody call 911' etc.Then he started writing codes in comedy and go the output as 'LOL','ROFL','I want my money back' etc.With this killer programming skills, he hacked the spotlight of the comedy circuit and started performing for the auditorium and corporate shows.
Anand Ratnam is a civil engineer turned stand-up comedian who hates almost everything in the world. A whiney and procrastinating comedian who has an opinion on everything but frankly nobody cares. He is sometimes funny though.
Kjeld sreshth (pronounced kelt sray-sssht!) is an idiot who grew up watching way too many movies as a kid and as a result, he is now convinced he has dreams in life! After finding out about the comedy scene in the city, he quit his corporate job and began to pursue a career in comedy, a mistake he hopes, one day, will make a great story to tell! Also, he's the one writing this description and he wants you to know that it's really weird to talk about oneself in the third person. Come down and watch Kjeld at any of his gigs, try his best to convince people to join the religion he just started.

Run'In and Gun'In : One host will moderate 5 comics going up against each other in 3 minute rounds. The comic with the weakest set in each round gets eliminated until we have one comic standing. Each set will last only 3 minutes and will be judged purely on applause breaks and audience reaction which will ensure the comedians go all out right from the start.
An easily intimidated, hyperactive stand-up comic, who loves chai, dancing and is always bouncing off the walls. He has performed with some of the best comics in the country for over 2 years and was part of Bangalores First Comedy Festival held at UB City in Oct 2015. Actually, his real name is Shankar but, as a child, his pet name was Shunky and he was teased by the name Shunky Monkey. It scarred him for life.
I should have stopped typing the bio, three lines ago. Alright, Stopping now. Alvida!

I know you won't believe anything written in the bio. I am just another guy who loves to laugh and make people laugh. You have to watch me to know me because just a small description is not enough to explain one's personality.
