2018 has been a craaazy year for India, content wise. While poetry and sketch-videos were trending on social media throughout the year, standup comedians left a mark on the audience too and how! With Facebook’s constant push to good content, standup comedy is not something that’s being run by a small fraternity anymore. Lot of fresh talent went viral and reached to millions of Indians this year. Thanks to platforms like Canvas Laugh Club and The Habitat.
