In this episode of The Design Your Thinking Podcast I sit down with one of India’s top comedians, Atul Khatri to talk about the serious business of Stand Up Comedy, his learnings from transitioning from being a businessman to a stand up comedian, and the back stories that make him unique (including his training approach for a million dollars!).
Atul Khatri is a Indian businessman who got up late in life and decided to do English Stand-up comedy so that he could tick it off his bucket list. He is an Indian Computer Engineer and a British Management Scholar who always orders soup one-by-two even when he is eating alone. CNN-IBN rated him as one of the top 20 Comedians in India to watch out for. He also won the ‘CEOS GOT TALENT’ trophy competing against 11 other CEOs in 2014.
There are plenty of reasons why you should listen to Atul Khatri. Let me give the top 3:
