YouTube is where all the talent, the ones to come to notice in the last few years, had initially flocked to. This fresh pool of talent had people who weren’t afraid to say what they wanted to. The kind of people who used humour effectively to comment on what was wrong with our society. It was from that lot that we also found Zakir Khan.
For someone who effortlessly laughs at himself and his subtle comments on social settings are the ones that might unsettle you for a split second, Zakir Khan is a stand-up comic who is gradually climbing his way to the top.
