Tanmay Bhat is an Indian stand-up comedian and one of the founders of the comedy group All India Bakchod. This podcast, commonly known as AIB, was found in 2012 and currently has more than 2 million subscribers.
Bhat was one of the first four Indian comedians to be featured at Mumbai’s first all-Indian Comedian Line Up- the Comedy Store titled Local Heroes. He has also performed with artists from UK in the Best In Stand Up event.
He has also played short roles in movies like Ragini MMS and MR. X.
Bhat is often in news for the wrong things given his unapologetic humor that leaves nobody out. One of the well-known controversies has been his Snapchat video about an imaginary conversation between Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar. Although veteran singer Mangeshkar wasn’t as angry as her fans, political parties like BJP and MNS filed a police complaint against Tanmay Bhatt and Shiv Sena went overboard to call Tanmay ‘Mentally deranged’.

Tanmay Bhat Career
Although Tanmay Bhat got his first major opportunity when he won the national comic hunt, ‘Weirdass Ham-ateur Hunt’ in 2009, Tanmay’s first brush with standup comedy happened when he was still in school, 7th grade to be exact. At a function in his apartment, he managed to convince the organizers to let him take the stage for five minutes. Once Tanmay got comfortable, he went on to captivate the audience for 20 minutes straight and was rewarded with their peels of laughter! That was when he realized his calling as a comedian.
A few years after making his official debut in 2009, he became the co-founder of India’s first comedy podcast, ‘All India Bakchod,’ popularly known as AIB, in the year 2012. He was one of the first Indian comedians to be featured at the Comedy Store in Soho, London. The show, titled ‘Local Heroes,’ featured an all-Indian comedian line-up including Tanmay and three other comedians. To his immense delight, Tanmay was named as one of the, ‘Top 10 Comics’ by ‘The Times of India’ recently. He has also performed in collaboration with artists from the UK in ‘The Best Standup Event.’ He is a part of ‘Cardinal Bengans,’ an international troupe of theater artists and comedians. He has also featured in cameo roles in Bollywood movies such as ‘Ragini MMS 2’ and ‘Mr. X.’
Tanmay Bhat Controversy
- The All India Bakchod (AIB) is known for overstepping their boundaries and more often than not, finding themselves in the middle of a controversy. In 2014, the AIB organized an event called the ‘AIB Knockout.’ The main objective of this show was to mock a few celebrities (called as “roasting”). This was based on popular US celebrity roast shows. A city based activist, Santosh Daundkar, lodged an FIR against the entire team of AIB, including Tanmay Bhat, for their alleged use of obscene and abusive language.
- In May 2016, another complaint was filed against Tanmay Bhat by a political party for posting a video titled, ‘Sachin vs Lata Civil War’ on Snapchat. In true AIB fashion, both the celebrities (mimicked by Tanmay himself) were roasted in a vulgar manner. In July 2016, Tanmay mocked Priyanka Chopra’s accent on Twitter in a jovial fashion. It soon got out of control, sending her fans into frenzy and Priyanka Chopra herself had to step in to assure her fans that it was all a joke.
