Photo Studios by Kautuk Srivastava: Stand-up Review


Comedian: Kautuk Srivastava.
Channel: Kautuk Srivastava (YouTube).
Language: English, Hindi.
Release Date: 1st February 2019.

Catch Phrase:

“If you put that picture on a missing poster people would say ‘thank god’!”


  • Every single one of us has pictures we are embarrassed about. And one that always makes the list is our passport size photos. No matter how handsome or pretty you look, your passport photo will always look hideous. Kautuk narrates it into a comic piece, that is hilarious and to the point.
  • Kautuk performs the entire piece with an exuberance that is welcome and adds to the whole experience of the piece. His expression, comic delivery, and strategic pauses prove what an excellent stand-up artist he is.
  • At the end of the piece, Kautuk even attaches his passport photos from various stages, that makes you laugh out loud at the quirky, thoughtful gesture.
  • Talking about thoughtful, quirky gestures, pay attention to the subtitles. Somewhere along the lines, you’ll see text that is not something he actually speaks out, working as fillers or subtext, that is funny.


  • The occasional use of graphics/strong words can be upsetting for some, apart from which the observational comedy is an entertaining watch.

The Final Verdict:

A highly relatable laughter riot that is a must watch.

Shraddha Raut

Dreamer- above all else; I like to read, sleep and overthink, in that order. You'll find me obsessing over Harry Potter, seas, moon, and window seats. If you are as fascinated by The God Of Small Things as me, we can be friends.
