28, Dec 2017 By Guest Patrakar

5. Rahul Gandhi

Rahul Gandhi has been a disappointment this year as he failed to maintain the consistency. Rahul Gandhi looked relatively more serious this year. Though he did make a few gaffes but they were not new.

3. Siddharth Malhotra

Siddharth Malhotra made it to the top 5 comedians of the year when he tried to encash a tragedy.

Hope you can see our film soon #Agentleman”


2. Alpesh Thakore

Gujarat OBC leader Alpesh Thakore gave a tough competition to all the existing standup comedians. Alpesh took a jibe at PM Modi and claimed that PM Modi minister eats imported mushrooms from Taiwan.
