Comedian by nature, cartoon by heart, writer by profession and entertainer by birth. This is how Zakir Khan likes to describe himself. He is the winner of various comedy shows like ‘Foster’s LOL Evenings’ and ‘Best Stand-Up Comic of India’ and a celebrated member of the famous channel ‘On Air With AIB’. Zakir Khan, in true terms, is living the life he has established for himself.
An Insight Into The Past:
Zakir Khan’s grandfather moved to Indore, Madhya Pradesh from Rajasthan. He was born on 20th August 1987 in Indore to parents Ismail Khan and Kulsum Khan. He gives the credit to his father for supporting him and for keeping the little family humble in its ways. Coming from a musical background, Zakir has a diploma in Sitar.
He was never much interested in getting a college degree and hence he moved to Delhi to pursue radio producing, where he first experienced loneliness. Also, he was bullied since childhood for his complexion and looks.
Till 2015, Zakir became a well-known face among the Delhi comedy circuit. One of his friends referred him to the AIB team, who was in search of a Hindi writer. This is how he ended up with his big break. The journey went on from writing to performing live shows. According to the audience, watching Zakir perform was similar to sitting in their living rooms and relaxing. The anecdotes he takes from his personal life in his acts makes them very relatable to people. Since his act on 15th November 2014, he has been on a blast among the viewers.
Zakir Khan’s life is all about how a teenage boy struggled to make his way through all hardships to make the whole country laugh about it. He also never forgets to mention the enthusiasm of his family which actually helped him survive the glitters of a different world for a middle-class family like his.
Zakir Khan mentions in his latest hit ‘Haq Se Single’ that “Bhai tumhara warrior hai!” And truly, “A Warrior Does Not Give Up.”
