Sid realised that he had a flair for comedy when he graduated in economics and started writing research reports. The natural progression towards stand-up comedy happened after he got married. His wife gives him moral support, by not attending his shows. Sid has been in the comedy circuit since 2011 having performed all across India and internationally in Hong Kong and Australia. He won the Raw Comedy Fest Bangalore twice (2012 & 2014) as part of Melbourne International Comedy Festival and also the Stand Up and Bajao contest held by RedFM in 2013. Sid was the runner up in Punchline Stand Up Comedy Contest in Bangalore and Chennai. Sid has performed for various Corporates such as Microsoft, L&W Construction (Singapore), AbsolutData, Appistocki, Magnasoft and ANZ. Sid has also contributed to social causes by performing for NGOs such as CUPA, VOSD and disaster relief fund raisers (Nepal earthquake relief). He has performed with star comedians such as Praveen Kumar (voted one of India’s top 10 Stand Up comedians), Sanjay Manaktala (of IT Guy fame), Sundeep Rao, and Bollywood comedian Suresh Menon. He is a regular performer in the Bangalore comedy circuit and an active member of the Bangalore Comedy Club. He has also produced shows at various venues (Jagriti Theatre, District 6 PBK, etc) and also is one of the curators of the a weekly open mic in North Bangalore (The Local). Sid’s humour is clean, observational and mature. Being in his mid-30’s he is easily able to relate with office goers and families alike with his humour. Catch Sid at the Pardesi Punchers Show!
