A Real Sense Standup Comedian.

Raju Srivastav born Satyaprakash Srivastava on December 25, 1963 often credited as Raju Shrivastav or Raju Srivastava, is an Indian comedian, and more popularly, an observational comedian. He is known most for his acute scrutiny and comical timing about various aspects of Indian life.

Satyaprakash Srivastava was born on 25 December 1963, in Kanpur, India. His father is the poet Rameshchandra Srivastava, otherwise known as Balai Kaka.

Being a good mimic, Srivastava nursed the dream of becoming a comedian since childhood. In his school time he used to imitate his teachers. He gained initial stardom as an Amitabh Bachchan impressionist. He landed in Mumbai (then Bombay), and after a few years did a small role in the superhit Rajshri movie Maine Pyar Kiya. He did many other small roles in a number of movies. Srivastava was a participant on Bigg Boss (Season 3), anchored by Amitabh Bachchan.

He has two children, Antra and Aayushmaan, by his wife, Shikha.

Srivastav has done stage shows with Kalyanji Anandji, Bappi Lahiri and Nitin Mukesh in India and abroad.

His big break, however, was the comedy talent show The Great Indian Laughter Challenge. He finished as second runner-up and then took part in the spin-off, The Great Indian Laughter Challenge – Champions, in which he won the title of “The King of Comedy”. After that, he was noticed by many filmmakers and got regular assignments in movies with bigger roles. Srivastav has been an avid supporter of good comedy and criticized vulgarity.
