‘Laughter is the best medicine’. We have all grown up hearing this line and fed with the importance of a good laugh a day, but few are those who are actually gifted to make us laugh and laugh hard.
In a world that’s only becoming a gloomier & a frightening place with every passing day, stand-up comedians come as a ray of hope in the darkness & are angels in human forms. They research, work hard, sit & write about what, how & where they have to speak in order to generate the most innocent pure emotion – a hearty laugh. On a day when the first celebration of Laughter Day was carried out i.e. 10th January, 1998, Jaipur Beat wants you to meet the 3 stand up comedians who hail from Rajasthan and have made it big in the world of comedy.
- Vipul Goyal
The only Indian comedian to have a web-series dedicated solely to him, Vipul Goyal was born in Falna in Rajasthan, India. Counted among the top stand-up Indian comedians , Vipul is adept at and has been tickling the funny bones with his satire, observational comedy & improvisational comedy for 6 years now with realistic & hilarious pieces like ‘Woh the papa’ and has had more than 50 million views on his online videos across various platforms.
- Shyam Rangeela The man who got infamously famous by getting innocently involved in a recent controversy at The Great Indian Laughter Challenge , Shyam Rangeela hails from Sri Ganganagar city in Rajasthan. He recently caught the eyes of media and politics owing to his fantastic mimicry of the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi & the President of the Indian National Congress Rahul Gandhi which got him eliminated from the reality show.
