How did you start comedy?
I got into comedy and making funny skits in 2015. We had a long strike in school then. I was home and idle, then I figured out that I could start doing funny videos on Instagram. Then Instagram video’s longest length was 15 seconds, so I started doing funny and creative stuff.
