I know it's America but worldwide audience of mean you have a huge following as you know especially in India and you know. What got you started in comedy like it will make you wanna do this I lose. I would corners in the US over the collision Indians book in the noise okay the knack of civilization the other thing that's probably just as foreign to most people here than any idea what you'll probably know. India the web pages that gives a little arm but that was in this drama program which was this really. Sentence not ski in lake it in the soaking in priority and hold hands and in more mutual we're those. Yeah and means senior you like it's gonna want to do thesis performance that was notable. Organic and fair utilization as a trial fan it was a unity is our fan I was in the Colleen. Does it begin to cause these comedy on behavior now. And important Cynthia did Bridget getting a state that. Bombs landed a reading Nicolaus and social yet it's called is called brown mankind. Because it was a movie out called likely gone America. I am desolate and people assembled people who stand up that sled full minutes or three minutes selective few people there I did. Ninety minutes for 800 people while bush having it stand up while which is the Willis do so it was a good. Because you know you got audited again on all assumed as I know this. And they've got to make too much video being booed off seated amateur especially ugly because gov OK I don't know. And their most people's first time as an open Mike night in front of their friends that and they still limited terrible then you've got to have those terrible moments first you can look you know move move into the obstinacy. He started off like. They give you were run in the world I imagine. I ate well his daughter reading comedy shows on meet the post socialist. So what I did was packed into the post a late night put up all of the gone his book. That the theater. And I give myself full months and like many minutes a comedy which again it is is it released jumping to do is it a Greg good. Ninety minutes in is in full Syria but even did beat what do who's on and on meet the post of the shall put out on social media is that I know I have to like digital and you know. That's gonna do. Lola and obviously is all handouts they said net flicks that the biggest tree service out there which as you know. Really the last couple years really kind of you know embraced comedy instead of comedy. And I to be included in that list of so many big names as a testament of the work you've been doing. Well I mean DVD cooled liquid and Netflix and you don't this whole matter could you mean was it began really you know half of like I showed up in the states to meet C because that's my agency and then. Tennessee OK to have a place in this market you know you wanna get good at tennis yet to play tennis with people who go to Davis. And that's what this comedy scene is this the best and one. So everybody was they go to Netflix and Oscar's fashion that is just straight down the nine middle of special. Way you do your thing 2000 people 4000 people. Short of good. On and I had this idea in that expected which is really nice we shouted Balkan India and a medical. So. It's a dead he's not a stadium which is 121000 people. But it also got some that food V he's dying he comedy club in America but with a 105 Americans knew to be in the basement so goes on to a thousand people a hundred people back in force there. So there is is it the same set this is seems it. So what you know compared to because a meat even here in America. There is vast differences from.
