About the Stars of the show:
“Avinash Agarwal is a Standup Comedian, MC and Speaker based out of Mumbai & Hyderabad (India). He started his career with training in Theatre & Dance and became an accomplished Toastmaster- representing India at the World Championship of Public Speaking (USA, 2013) and finished in the World Top 27! Now he is an established Comedian, with over 100 successful shows to his credit – including Indian and International shows. Having appeared on NDTV Prime ‘Rising Stars of Comedy’, he has hosted shows with Abhay Deol and Johnny Lever, written scripts for Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra, he has been MC’ing and performing standup for a number of high profile corporate and private shows. He is the co-founder of the upcoming Comedy Collective ‘The Unglis’ which has had a great start with its YouTube channel. Identifying audience profiles and creating customized content for them has been his forte. His strength lies in his edgy content, wit and spontaneity on stage. Some audiences also quote him to be likeable, but that remains open to controversy!
GEORGE VIVIAN PAUL (host of the show):
George, a Mallu born into an army family, was provided the best education across the country by his parents and relatives with extremely high hopes of seeing him outrank his father and grandfather in the army, or have a spectacular career in medicine. As it turned out, he did his engineering and now tells jokes.
With utterly bewildered relatives and parents wondering still how to fix him, he can be seen weirding people out at comedy venues of “KALKUTTA KOMEDIANS” and “COMEDIFIED” in Kolkata. This highly impulsive human being has further delusions of having a sustainable standup comedy scene in his hometown Kochi, hence “KOCHIN KOMEDIANS”.
Vinay Menon started his comedy career in Bangalore back in 2012. After starting out with a few open mic nights, he’s gone on to do shows across South India in Bangalore, Chennai, Goa, Bombay, Hyderabad, Trivandrum and his home town of Cochin, including hosting shows and judging stand up events in colleges. Currently residing in Cochin to get the comedy scene started, he simultaneously does YouTube videos of which his take on the Kiss of Love movement went viral. Vinay would like to continue his career in comedy without offending anyone and thus getting killed and he also refers to himself in the third person so that you will think he’s hired someone to write this out for him.
Shyam Narayan Sreekumar, an Engineer by graduation calls himself a true Malayali due the fact that he was born and brought up in the Middle East. Stand-up comedy was something he just stumbled upon while going through YouTube one day and that caught his attention. Starting off by going to open mics in Chennai, he moved to Kochi for work and joined Kochin Komedians at its stage of creation. He cites Chris Rock, Louis C.K., Michael McIntyre, Ricky Gervais, Anuvab Pal and his own father who makes jokes about everything under the sun as his inspiration to try his hand at stand-up comedy.
Robin Jose, an animator by the graduation he holds , has worked in numerous IT/ MNCs in the past 5 years. His undying love for the entertainment world ranging right from Hollywood movies to series to cartoons and even the mystical world of Animes has always made him a unique specimen as he hails from the “simble n humble” God’s own country Kerala. Stand up was always a dare away and it finally engulfed him in the form of Kochin Komedians,” posted the team on facebook.
