Rahul Subramanian:
Tamilian, Brahmin, Vegetarian, Engineer, MBA, Married.. He is basically everything that could have gone wrong with someone...

Abbas Momin:
Abbas Momin is a freelance humour writer which means he has no self respect & lives below the poverty line. He tried his hand at becoming a doctor (which is often believed to be the reason behind the dwindling fortunes of the medical fraternity) but was left with a lot of depression & low self esteem, which made him realize he’s perfect to be a comedian.

Kunal Kamra:
Kunal Kamra has a career in advertising which has made him so jaded and frustrated that he does stand up in order to satisfy his need to ridicule and mock what he sees in his daily life. He's an observational comedian, and is known for his weird and twisted take on things. He's brutally honest and incisive and his material is fresh, edgy and hilarious.

Gilbert "Gilby" Clarke, an American guitarist & record producer best known for his 3-year tenure as rhythm guitarist of Guns N’ Roses. He twiddled production knobs for internationally lauded, tumbledown punks The Bronx, LA Guns & Alice Cooper. More importantly, he’s made a bunch of records that rock ’n’ roll purists the world over treasure and occasionally argue about. 

In 2006 Gilby starred on CBS’s Rockstar: Supernova. Gilby, Tommy Lee and Jason New stead started a new band and used the television show to pick a singer. They released a record for Epic and launched a world tour the following year. Gilby also played guitar for the VH1 Rock Honors tribute to Kiss with his new band mate Tommy.

To this day Gilby continues to write gut-bucket rock ’n’ roll songs with fat choruses. He continues to produce worthy bands. You can find him slinging guitar and doing his Lennonesque vocal thing in the Blues Mafia and on occasional solo dates around the globe.

He’s also one of the sweetest gents you could ever hope to meet. He’s a guitar hero, certainly, but also a gentlemanly student of rock ’n’ roll.

Gilby Clarke understands rock ’n’ roll; hell, his heart pumps the shit.

Check him performing out here
