Vipul Goyal is an Electrical Engineering graduate from IIT Bombay. 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 HUMOUR Resources. He mixed Laughs and Entrepreneurship and founded the most Unique HR firm 'Humorously Yours' which has since pioneered Stand Up Comedy and Entertainment Shows. Given his originality and clean witty content, within a very short span of time he has entertained audiences at all the major public platforms ranging from college festivals to their alumni meets to corporate summits. 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++.
Atul Khatri is a 40+ guy, we're talking about his age not IQ.

An Indian Computer Engineer and a British management scholar who always orders soup one by two even when he is eating alone. He is from a decent double income, two kids and strictly no sex Sindhi family. In his spare time he loves to dig his nose for gold hoping that one day a solitaire will emerge which he can eventually gift it to his wife.
