As Kenny Sebastian mentors the future of comedy in Amazon Prime Video Original's Comicstaan, the comedian shared how he started storytelling.
Being one of the most loved comic artists in the nation, Kenny has been an inspiration to the budding talents.
Coming up with new and interesting acts everytime, Kenny along with fellow judges have been mentoring the contestants of Comicstaan to hunt for the future of comedy.
The comedian shared a comical picture and wrote, " One of my first access to storytelling/art of any sort has been comic books.
The way comic books took you through a story just using visuals had unmistakable flare to it.
I survived through school sketching superheroes at the back of my notebooks (been caught sketching iron man during my boards on my question paper also ). My dad recently told me that he used to take me out to drawing competitions & I used to finish really fast and observe the other kids sketching.
Guess I was wondering why would you draw anything from real life when you can render anything your mind wants."
