Karan Talwar spent a decade in the US where he gained work experience and lost all his hair. After returning to Mumbai in 2009 he founded Schitzengiggles – which is now Mumbai’s premier local stand up platform.
Karan is a comic who is not known to mince his words (“Can children be considered a form of STD?”). He may be slightly grotesque (“I was 16 when I realized MENSA wasn’t a group of crazy women bleeding from their vaginas.”) and maybe even politically incorrect at times but he does not hate anyone, except those who takes things too seriously. You people suck.
Karan was featured in NH7. Read the article here.

Some of Karan’s lines:
“I’m not a smoker so I find it really annoying when people sit in my car and ask ‘hey is it OK if I smoke in here?’. So I return the favor by hitching a ride in their car and asking ‘hey is it OK if I fart in here?’”
“Whats the deal with women tennis players grunting so much these days? It’s getting really awkward to watch Tennis with family. I blame Monica Seles. No wonder she got stabbed.”
“I remember back in school when I used to sit in class and wonder ‘why are they teaching us all this stuff when we won’t use 90% of it.’ I was so wrong. It’s more like 98%.”
