Moreover, comedians – Abish Mathew, Atul Khatri, JordIndian, Evam Stand-up Tamasha, SnG Comedy and homegrown Kirik Keerthi made fans roll in their aisles with their stand-up comedy and hysterically funny skits.
Satya Raghavan, Entertainment Head, YouTube in India, said “We are overwhelmed with the response we have seen in Bangalore today and simply loved the enthusiasm with which the crowd cheered for their favourite YouTube star. Creators on YouTube are flourishing and have not just become a local phenomenon, but also global! 40% of views on their channels come from outside of India. With local content gaining more traction, we wanted to bring YouTube creators and their fans together to witness the real magic of Youtube. Bangalore’s first ever city showcase did just that and we are excited to come back next year.”
