Varun Grover is an Indian comedian and screenwriter. After briefly working as a software consultant in an MNC in Pune, he moved to Mumbai in 2004 to become a writer.

He later moved into stand-up comedy, and works as lyrics writer and screenplay writer for the Hindi film industry.

After working in the software industry for almost 10 years, he quit his job and decided to become a stand-up comedian. His comedy is centered around common issues like life in India, politics, religion, caste, gender politics and feminism. While most comedians just make jokes, Sanjay tells jokes with a social message.
Kamal Trilok Singh
Kamal Trilok Singh is a filter-less, politically incorrect comic. His wife describes him as a ‘Punjabi Dyslexic Pigeon.’ Observational, topical and often satirical, KTS is always trying hard to find where to draw the line and is often spotted peeing over the line when he finds it. His scathing, if not passionate, point of view is a unique combination of self deprecation, and blatant rhetoric on social change, societal double standards and political hypocrisy.
