Abish Mathew

Abish is one of the most versatile, recognizable and beloved content creators in the country today. He is a prolific content creator: Being one of the first YouTube stars (he started his channel in 2007!), he has 30 million views on that platform alone. These videos include sketches, stand-up, and of course, his hit talk-show, Son of Abish, which has featured stars like AIB, Vishal Dadlani, Kanan Gill, Biswa Kalyan Rath, Badshah, Taapsee Pannu, Shibani Dandekar, Cyrus Broacha, Vir Das and more over two seasons.

As a stand-up comedian, he has performed 1000+ shows across India and the world, including New York, Canada and the prestigious Utrecht International Comedy Festival (Holland). He dabbles in musical comedy, often appearing on stage with a guitar, and performing with his band A+K (along with Kenny Sebastian), including at the country’s biggest multi-genre music festival, Bacardi NH7 Weekender. As a director, he directed Kenny’s comedy special. He is a seasoned compere and host as well – he was the host of the 2016 YouTube FanFest in Mumbai.

He has created content for several brands, including Breezer Vivid and ads for Netflix, apart from voice-overs and jingles. His brand of clean humour has won over crowds in clubs, colleges and corporates alike.

These achievements have led to acclaim from his legions of fans, respect from fellow comedians and recognition from industry – he was featured in the Forbes 30 under 30 list in 2016.
