Stand-up acts are still new to India. Previously, stand-up comedians did not become popular due to restricted media and coercions by the censor board. Their popularity began only after a series of comedy reality shows began to populate our idiot boxes, one at a time.
The path-breaking evolution of stand-up acts took a major turn when the comedians began to channel their talent through social media. YouTube is a mecca for talent galore, talk about featuring comedians, singers, beauty bloggers, fashion bloggers, and the likes who are not only working at the comfort of their home yet earning a great fame and money for themselves.
