Career

Although Tanmay Bhat got his first major opportunity when he won the national comic hunt, ‘Weirdass Ham-ateur Hunt’ in 2009, Tanmay’s first brush with standup comedy happened when he was still in school, 7th grade to be exact. At a function in his apartment, he managed to convince the organizers to let him take the stage for five minutes. Once Tanmay got comfortable, he went on to captivate the audience for 20 minutes straight and was rewarded with their peals of laughter! That was when he realized his calling as a comedian.

A few years after making his official debut in 2009, he became the co-founder of India’s first comedy podcast, ‘All India Bakchod,’ popularly known as AIB, in the year 2012. He was one of the first Indian comedians to be featured at the Comedy Store in Soho, London. The show, titled ‘Local Heroes,’ featured an all-Indian comedian line-up including Tanmay and three other comedians. To his immense delight, Tanmay was named as one of the, ‘Top 10 Comics’ by ‘The Times of India’ recently. He has also performed in collaboration with artists from the UK in ‘The Best Standup Event.’ He is a part of ‘Cardinal Bengans,’ an international troupe of theater artists and comedians. He has also featured in cameo roles in Bollywood movies such as ‘Ragini MMS 2’ and ‘Mr. X.’

Controversies & Scandals

The All India Bakchod (AIB) is known for overstepping their boundaries and more often than not, finding themselves in the middle of a controversy. In 2014, the AIB organized an event called the ‘AIB Knockout.’ The main objective of this show was to mock a few celebrities (called as “roasting”). This was based on popular US celebrity roast shows. A city based activist, Santosh Daundkar, lodged an FIR against the entire team of AIB, including Tanmay Bhat, for their alleged use of obscene and abusive language.

In May 2016, another complaint was filed against Tanmay Bhat by a political party for posting a video titled, ‘Sachin vs Lata Civil War’ on Snapchat. In true AIB fashion, both the celebrities (mimicked by Tanmay himself) were roasted in a vulgar manner. In July 2016, Tanmay mocked Priyanka Chopra’s accent on Twitter in a jovial fashion. It soon got out of control, sending her fans into frenzy and Priyanka Chopra herself had to step in to assure her fans that it was all a joke.

Personal Life

Tanmay Bhat was born on 23 June 1987 in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. He attended Seth Chunilal Damodardas Barfiwala High school in Mumbai and was a hardworking student who topped his classes in school.

If not a standup comedian, Tanmay Bhat would have become a marine engineer. He was always overweight as a kid and had to face a lot of fat shaming throughout his childhood. One of the incidents in his life that left a strong mark was when his parents bought him a bicycle in the 8th standard, and challenged him to lose five kilos in six months. He turned it into an opportunity to work really hard and ultimately succeeded in shedding the kilos! To cope with being overweight, he started using humor as a self-defense mechanism. He has always felt that being called fat helped him become as popular as he is right now because that’s what led him to take up comedy as a means of letting out all his rage and shame. In his own words, “From your biggest adversity, comes the biggest opportunity.” And boy, did he make good use of it!
