Top 10 Comedians Of India

 Top 10 Comedians Of India

Laughter is a very serious business. It is perhaps the hardest job of the entertainment industry, and the one that involves the most risk. Comedians perpetually remain a step below the actors, and even if they did appear in movies, it is as sidekicks, with not much scope of development. They are asked to appear in award shows, with barely 5 minutes of screen time, to make the people laugh and then disappear. However, there are some comedians who do not need to look out for opportunities to appear on television shows. They are invited there, and they have their own television shows too, which the audience waits for eagerly. Their TRPs are high and their content is strong, so they build a loyal audience. Some comedians are doing well enough to have their own tours, which may be nationwide or countrywide. Most of the times these tickets are sold out, since the audience that had seen them on the internet or in movies eagerly come to see them in person. So, the following is the list of the top 20 comedians of our country. They may be veteran actors, internet sensations or people who have their own shows on television.


Dubbed as India’s funniest man, Kapil’s real break came in the form of ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil’. The show was loved nationwide, and then worldwide. With fans all over the world, Kapil often went to do shows in other countries with his entire team. His fans even hold him responsible for getting them out of depression or treating them from their sickness. He took this a notch higher with his next show, ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.


Both the shows that are the base for Kapil Sharma’s popularity, The Kapil Sharma Show and Come Nights With Kapil, depend on Sunil Grover and the many characters he plays. Despite being a fairly handsome man, he plays women, old men and a lot more, with all seriousness. He is one of those comedians who take their work seriously. An example can be that when he left Comedy Nights With Kapil, a lot of the audience lost interest in the show.


John Prakasa Rao Janumala is a senior comedian born exactly ten years after our independence, on 14th August 1957 and is perhaps the best in his business. His 13 nominations for Film fare in the category of the Best Comedian is clear testimony to that and as an actor, he has been a part of more than 300 films!


Sudesh is a very senior comedian, having appeared in many films and daily soaps. He began as a contestant in ‘The Great Indian Laughter Challenge 2’ and has since touched great heights as a comedian, having appeared alongside Salman Khan in ‘Ready’. His most popular gigs are always with Krushna, and the two have been working together for over 10 years now.


Sudesh Lehri’s permanent partner, no producer can even dream of driving these two away from each other. He is a great dancer and actor along with being a comedian. He has participated in early seasons of both Jhalak Dikhla Jaa and Nach Baliye, and is frequently teased for being ‘Govinda’’s nephew.


She stood third in ‘The Great Indian Laughter Challenge 4’ and since then has created a niche for herself. Having appeared in many award shows, reality shows and dance shows, she is also a well-known anchor and has hosted many seasons of India’s Got Talent too. She previously appeared in Comedy Circus, but is now known for her appearance on ‘’ and ‘Comedy Nights Live’.


When we talk about the Indian comic scene, we cannot forget Kader Khan, who is not just a well-known comedian, but also a writer, director and film actor who has appeared in over 300 films. He is also a civil engineer and has taught civil engineering before he became an actor.


Although he has appeared in many comedy shows, his best work till date appears on The Comedy Night With Kapil and The Kapil Sharma Show, where he plays several characters. He has become a recognized comedian and remains at the top of his game with his friends and colleagues like Kapil Sharma, Sunil Grover and Ali Asgar.


Raju Srivastav, or Satya Prakash Shrivastav, is a well-known Indian standup comedian from Kanpur, UP. He is also seen frequently in movies and is active in politics too. He was one of the earliest comedians of this era and has done over 3500 stage shows. He has appeared in several reality shows and enjoys a substantial fan following due to the sheer amount of work behind him.


Having acted in many films and television daily soaps, Ali Asgar has now blossomed his career through his stint as a comedian. He was a contestant in the very first season of Comedy Circus with Kashif Khan and took the first place, then played the role of Dadi in Comedy Nights With Kapil, and is now essaying the role of Nani and other characters in The Kapil Sharma Show. Before all this, he played a very serious role in ‘Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki’, as Kamal Aggarwal.
