Nitin Gupta

A chemical engineer who traded his IIT degree to become an ‘entertainment engineer’

He started performing in 2009 as a stand-up & sketch comedy artist, & since then he has done over 500 live events. He is the Founder and CEO of the comedy venture Humorbeings, earlier known as Entertainment Engineers.

Rivaldo’s standup material ranges from timeless classics like dating, marriage, honeymoon to current affairs and socio-economic issues.
