Driven to the point of having a mid-life crisis by his investment-banking job, Vikram Poddar started doing stand-up comedy (instead of therapy) to remedy himself. Audiences across the country received his show The Bored Room Comedy with rave reviews (and were seen chuckling long after the show was done). The comedian also conducts team-building workshops using humor, clowning and YouTube videos of cats, teaching how to tolerate the corporate life better. People ask him, “Why the switch from Investment Banking to Comedy?” He usually tells them, “The way investors laughed at my valuations, it was a logical career choice”. An MBA by qualification, Vikram thrives on making fun of the corporate life, desk jobs, HR, Linkedin and his lazy eye (very logical connection) and is often called the corporate comedian.
