Aakash Mehta was first introduced to stand-up comedy by his brother Aditya Mehta, who gave him 13 seasons of the stand-up comedy DVD series “Comedy Central Presents.” However, Aakash was inspired to try stand-up comedy after receiving a compliment from a “pretty girl” whom he refers to as “just friend.” He admitted in an interview that he occasionally made people laugh with his jokes, but that it wasn’t until she gave me a praise that I began performing at more open mics. I kept going after that because I had fallen in love with the work of art.”
He was inspired by the praise to give his debut stand-up performance at Sophia College’s “Kaleidoscope” student festival. Aakash signed up for his first open mic sometime in 2010 or 2011. In an interview, the performer described his first open mic as, “I entered the open mic venue after coming outside and was absolutely stunned! The space was teeming with conversation, drinking, and laughter. Since then, it has been a love story; I discovered comedy.”
He posted his first stand-up performance, a comedy set about “New Relationships,” to his YouTube account on August 31, 2015.
After that, he posted a number of stand-up comedy videos on his YouTube page, including Sex Education, Having Kids in India, Break-Ups & Shopping With GF, and others.
