Desi Laughs presents Jeeveshu Ahluwalia-Unabashed/Uninhibited/Unapologetic

Date : 20 October 2016

That’s what Jeeveshu is known as in the comedy circuit. After being diagnosed with Monday allergies, he quit his job and walked away to do Stand-Up. Three years later, he’s happier bringing roaring laughter to thousands than lecturing a corporate smartass. His fascination with comedy normally sways between a fat guy’s amusing life (his) and failed attempts to please his over optimistic mother whose only dream is to get him married. And thinner. And taller. And younger...

Jeeveshu’s quick wit can be easily spotted in spontaneous one-liners & quirky jokes. His peculiar style of comedy is most inspired by everyday observations. His journey from the board room to the biggest clubs, colleges, corporates, auditoriums and comedy festivals has taken him to every corner of India and other countries such as Singapore, Dubai, Doha, Thailand, Philippines and Malaysia (who doesn’t love travelling for free!).
