Comedian Aayush Shrestha from Nepal
Aayush ShresthaNepal

Thank his mother’s over confidence in him for making him think that he should go up to the mic and try to make people laugh. He’s known for talking about masturbation (because who’s got time for “quality content”?) and sex (or the lack of it), and for laughing at his own jokes.

Born in Nepal and raised in American movies, he has an out-of-place sense of humor for a Nepali guy, just like his sense of reality.
