He chats with Anila Kurian about his journey so far.

What inspired you to write the content for the show?

When I was approached by Amazon Prime Video team to do the show, I had various options to choose from. But for my solo special, I wanted my audience to know me and where I come from. I grew up and started my comedy career in Delhi as well. That's why I wanted my show to be called 'Dili Se...'.

Where do you draw a line when it comes to offensive content?

I've been told I am the comedian who has uploaded the most number of YouTube videos. So far, I haven't received any negative comments about my content. I just focus on making my audience laugh and keep them happy without offending anyone.

What are some of your future goals?

I am working on my next one-hour special but I will always be loyal to my first love, standup shows.

I am a lot more comfortable doing standup shows than web series.

According to you, what's the comedy scene in India like?

It's amazing and the best time is right now. I have performed in 14 countries since I started in 2009 and I've seen how it's difficult for comedians to make their mark in the industry. But there's a huge demand for the artwork here.

What's your lamest best worst joke?

I don't write jokes that I find lame.

Is there a topic that you never want to make a joke about?

To be honest, if I find it funny and I know that my audience will too, then I don't think twice. I don't restrict myself to only a number of topics.
