Anirban Dasgupta is a comedian, writer and full-time married person from Kolkata. Unsubstantiated reports claim that he is the hardest working Bengali in the world (other contenders were too lazy to contest). He is also a certified nice guy. And as if that is not enough, he is funny too. Now based out of Mumbai, he is also actively building the comedy scene in Kolkata.
In his three-year affair with stand-up, Anirban has performed extensively across the country, been featured as a ‘Best in Stand up’ act and has opened for the biggest stars, including Vir Das and Cyrus Barucha. We feel he married a tad too early but his wife thinks otherwise. Another inconsequential fact about Anirban is that he is an engineer.
Anirban has featured in over 400 shows, which include auditorium shows, college fests, corporate and private shows. He has been featured multiple times on NDTV Prime’s The Rising Stars of Comedy and by India Today, The Times of India, Mid-Day and The Telegraph amongst others.
