Humorously Yours – A Special By Vipul Goyal

Vipul Goyal is an Electrical Engineering graduate from IIT Bombay and the man behind the success of the hugely popular TVF series – Humorously Yours.

Fresh out of college, he worked as a retail analyst in Adventity Inc. for 6 months, but soon realised that his heart was in H.R. where HR stands for HUMOR Resources. Within a very short span of time, he has entertained the audience at all the premium colleges, corporate and entrepreneur summits, and has been financially laughing his way to the banks for loans. As he humorously puts it, he has the distinction of being the only stand up comic in India who performs in 4 different languages, English, Hindi, Java and C++, and now he is all set to bring humorously yours from behind the camera, to the stage in-front of a live audience.
