An engineer from Odisha, Sailesh Hota had picked up a liking for stand up comedy from his college years at NIT Tiruchirappalli. At a time when the comedy circuits across the country were booming, thanks to the rising internet consumption and the hunt for fresh and edgy content, Sailesh found himself enjoying every bit of the stand-up process.
