Kumar defines his humour as, “My slice of humour involves natural and funny stories from South India, being an Engineer, being an Indian, being a son and what not! I keep my humour personal while trying to connect and relate to the audience.”

Enna Rascala! That’s the only insult from South India that the rest of India knows. But very few know that South Indians, and especially Tamil people, are the masters of creating new and unique insults to throw in any kind of a situation. watch here
