Ahmed Shariff has appeared on NDTV's Rising Stars of Comedy several times and has performed all over India. Ahmed made his debut in show business at the tender age of 5, when he played the role of a tree in a kindergarten school play. Critics described his acting as wooden and Ahmed took it as a compliment. A health freak, rationalist, poet and perfectionist, he started comedy in mid-2011 (Spend one year in IT sales, you will be desperate enough to try anything too!).
Praveen Kumar has been rated as one of the top 10 stand-up comedians in India by Times of India in 2011 and luckily for him there was no survey after that. He started getting on stage during his college days in BITS, Pilani where he was part of the MIME club. After he passed out from BITS, he wanted to do something related to comedy and so he got married. He started off his stand-up comedy career in 2009 and has performed in over 500 shows in 17 cities in India and also in Dubai. He has done shows with the famous Kapil Sharma, Vir Das, Papa CJ, Cyrus Broacha etc. He recently staged his first solo one-hour special ''The Tickle Minded''.
Hosted by Sundeep Rao:
Sundeep Rao is India's only blind comic. Actually, partially blind. He brings to the stage his comic foresight, which unlike his sight, is rather clear and sharp around the edges. Let him take you on a journey of being, moving around and living as a blind man in India. Says Sundeep, ''The inability to laugh at life's problems, challenges and inadequacies is a disability in itself!''
