Who is the better comedian, Kenny Sebastian, Abish Mathew, or Tanmay Bhatt?
here can’t be a specific answer to this. All of them do comedy of different genres so there cannot be a good comparison. Tanmay performs hardcore comedy, like insulting jokes, roasts, and very offensive stuff. I like him more than the others, but everyone doesn’t take jokes lightly, hence he has more haters than the other two. Kenny does stand-up comedy. His jokes are too from the lives of common people and are lighter as compared to the jokes of Tanmay. Abish hasn’t really got a genre. He does all kinds of things. But acting is his best part.
