Well, comedy has an immense power to detoxify one’s soul and move him out of some kind of mental disorder. To become a standup comedian, you do not require to do extraordinary things but a small unexpected line like, “Hey! I’ll be back in five minutes but if I’m not, then read this message again,” can make everyone laugh.
Although, it’s a nice career opportunity but many guys having such quality, reluctant to follow their passion. There could be innumerable reasons, such as hailing from a typical middle-class family, guys rarely make a personal choice. All their life decisions are either made after family discussion or out of the best possible option until they have self-realization of their true love or we can call it “passion”.
And, the extremely strange thing is that, when we were small kid, our families encourages us to sing, dance or chant jokes in front of guests at family gatherings. But, over the time, if same kid realize that he is enjoying being the entertainer, the same family conditioned us to believe that the mantra to live a successful, ideal life is you grow up, graduate, and find a decent job.
However, after the huge success of several comedians, this trend is changing now. Some prosperous stand-up comedians such as Kenny Sebastian, Varun Thakur, Zakir Khan, Amit Tandon, Biswa Kalyan Rath, Kanan Gill, and many others have built a zest among guys to make a career in this field.
Besides, if we look a few years back, then the comedy scene in India was dominated by either Bollywood or established TV show stars. In today’s time, we see a new fashion of comedians is emerging. And, the best part is that they are consistently coming with new and innovative ideas to thrill their audience. Due to these reasons, Indian stand up comedy has seen a steady rise.
Moreover, today’s youth are willing to take the risk and in this modern era, their parents are also more supportive than in the twentieth century. And, most of the guys start their career at a very early age, that is, from college only. Therefore, they have wider opportunity to excel in their field, since they are into a win-win situation. Furthermore, at this age, they have nothing to lose and its a true fact that a person can perform better when he is free from all kinds of insecurities.
