Call it fate or destiny, but not everyone can achieve success in the field they graduate. Kanan GIll happens to be one of those comedians who graduated as a Computer Science engineer but was made for something bigger than just a cubicle. He worked for Exeter Group Inc. as a software engineer for three years where he happened to participate in Punchline Bangalore and won it. Later, he also took part in Comedy Store in Mumbai.
It was then, Kanan started to taste success in the world of comedy and didn't stop in his newly opted profession.
It was in 2014 when he came up with three YouTube series of his own and also became a part of the show Son of Abish when he shared the stage with Biswa Kalyan Rath and Sonakshi Sinha (Season 2 and 3, respectively).
While he was making people laugh, the creator of 'I can do that' (one of his YouTube series) appeared in his first Bollywood film Noor.
With his razor-sharp wit, Kanan is one of India's most famous sketch and stand-up comedians. The Mumbai-based comic has performed over a 1000 shows around the world and his recent comedy special, Keep It Real (2017, on Amazon Video), was received with rave reviews. The man (who was only a boy back then) shot to fame with the hit Pretentious Movie Reviews series, with fellow comedian Biswa Kalyan Rath. He also dabbles in sketch comedy, acted in How Insensitive! And the acclaimed mockumentary Better Life Foundation by Them Boxer Shorts.
