Papa CJ quit his corporate job following an epiphany during a visit to the 2004 Edinburgh Fringe, and took up a comedy career instead. He is now widely recognized as the global ambassador of cutting-edge Indian stand-up. New Delhi-born, Sanawar-schooled, Calcutta-bred and Oxford-educated, he represented India on Last Comic Standing on NBC in 2008. From the thousands of comedians who took part, he was ranked as one of the top ten acts in the world. He has since gone on to perform widely in North America, Africa, Europe and Asia. A performer with a conscience, Papa CJ founded the charity One Child, which works with underprivileged children in India. This charity is funded by his comedy.
