Karunesh Talwar
Karunesh Talwar is a young comic and writer who made his way into the local comedy scene by winning several open mic competitions, including the Comedy Store's RAW. When not doing stand-up, he can be found doing other things. Also, he's 1/7 billionth the population of the world.

Jaideep Singh
Jaideep Singh Juneja aka JD is the funniest sardar since Manmohan Singh. His parents wanted him to be an astronaut when he grew up so that he could go to outer space and find his real parents. Sadly he never grew up!

Naveen Polisetty
Ever since he played the iconic role of a bartender in a school play at a very young age, Naveen knew he had it in him to become an alcoholic....sorry, actor! He is a 'theatre actor', which is basically a code word for: you would have never seen his plays and hence he never gets paid! As it's a prerequisite for everyone who wants to be an actor in India, Naveen is also an Engineer! He graduated from NIT Bhopal. As someone who is new to the stand-up scene, Naveen feels his tragedy is your comedy.

Rajasekhar Mamidanna
RSM is a Harvard graduate. He has a Phd in Information systems. He has produced a research paper in Stanford. And he is a member of Greenpeace! Ideally this is how his dad would have wanted it to be. Just to give a chance to others to accomplish all those, he stayed calm. He is a B.Tech Computer science graduate and MBA marketing guy, who now, is good at making fun of both degrees.

Kanan Gill
Kanan Gill is the tip of an iceberg, where the rest of the iceberg is a confused Punjabi under water. He is a writer, musician, stand up comedian, software engineer, fitness enthusiast and slightly creepy man. He exploded onto the stand up comedy scene by winning the Punch Line Bangalore competition, going straight on to win the open mic at The Comedy Store in Bombay and is consequently stumbling onto big stages all over the place armed with his weird take on life and his weirder sense of humour. You can catch him doing his thing and keeping audiences in splits or hiding in trees, writing stories.

Rohan Joshi
Rohan Joshi is a stand-up comedian, writer, columnist, and occasional screenwriter. He used to be a full-time journalist, and it was this strong background in the highest form of Indian comedy that there is, that inspired him to quit, and pursue comedy full-time. From opening for Vir Das to performing at the Fringe Festival, Edinburgh in 2011, Rohan has spent the last few years performing around India, and indeed, around the world. When he's not doing stand-up at comedy-clubs or for corporate clients, he's a member of Weirdass Comedy, India's first and foremost comedy consultancy, and improv troupe, the Cardinal Bengans. He is also a humour-columnist for the Mid-Day, one of Mumbai's largest tabloids. As a stand-up comedian, Rohan's material is political, observational, and adult in its sensibilities. Note however that "adult" does not always mean mature. Rohan resents the suggestion that he might in fact be mature. TIME Magazine put Rohan at #1 on their 100 Most Influential People Who Might Lie About TIME Magazine Statistics List, and Newsweek calls Rohan “Huh? Who?”

They have opened for some of the biggest acts in India like Indus Creed, Junkyard Groove and Raghu Dixit and have also opened for international artist, Norah Jones (at A Summer's Day in Mumbai).

Formerly known as Nick Terranova, Las Vegas talent Starkillers has been cutting a swathe through the bolshier end of the global house music scene over the last few years with his tough-edged, eclectic sound. Blending big hooks and riffs, soaring vocals, thumping beats and mind-bending effects trickery, his sound is the perfect blend of high-octane, fierce energy and accessible appeal.  

It’s not about subtlety or tradition; instead its a question of pushing technology and sound to their limits, and creating in-your-face tracks with plenty of charisma and attitude. There’s nothing mundane going on here. Pitch bending leads, rugged bass, mind-warping FX, huge builds and drops; everything in a Starkillers track is designed for maximum impact on the dancefloor, and his potent blend of electro house groove and sharp trance-laced breakdowns has seen his records signed to huge labels including Doorn, Ultra and Spinnin. 

He’s succeeded without the hyperbole that surrounds so many other artists, his popularity speaking for itself with two of Beatport’s Top 25 biggest-sellers of 2009 (including a Number 1 during the same year with his remix of Armand Van Helden’s classic The Funk Phenomenon), and more sales smashes over the last two years. Then there’s his Essential New Tune accolade from Pete Tong and an IDMA Award nomination for his anthem Discoteka, and acclaimed remixes for some of the biggest names in the world - including Robbie Rivera, Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Jerome Isma-Ae and iiO. More recently his track with the stunning Nadia Ali and 303lovers’ Alex Kenji, Pressure, has received huge support from DJs across the scene and smashed Beatport’s sales charts once again.
