Born into a middle class family and raised across different
cities in India helped 25 year old Kenneth
Sebastian develop a keen sense of observation of culture, people
and stereotypes, all of which have found its way into his comedy. A graduate
from an art school, he dabbled with painting, music and film making with an
editors credit on a feature film before he found his true calling in the form
of stand up comedy. Kenneth Sebastian was featured as the number 1 young indian
to watch out for in 2016 on Buzzfeed India.
He also toured America with Abish Mathew performing in New
York at the prestigious New York Comedy Club, Laughing Skull in Atlanta, West
Side Comedy Theater in Los Angeles. He has undergone training in sketch
comedy writing at Magnet Theater (New York) and done two levels of
Improvisation Training at the world renowned Upright Citizens Brigade (Amy
Poehler – New York).
Having performed in over 500 shows in the last five years,
written and hosted a show on Comedy Central that completed one season and
having released four comedy specials online along with India’s first
sci-fi comedy web series, Kenneth is well on his way to change the face of
comedy in India.

When Speaking Minds was founded in 2007 in New Zealand, little did we envisage that this would grow into an international brand with offices in India and London in less than a decade. We set up the business to share what we had learnt, from the privileges we have had in our jobs – of access to knowledge.
Bringing India to the rest of the world was our driving force.
The dna of our business is genuinely about sharing knowledge with the
world, from thought leaders and experts who are notable achievers in
their field. Raga D'silva quit her highly successful corporate career in
New Zealand in 2007, to set up a dream business of connecting
knowledge, insights, motivation from exceptional talent with the
corporate world, globally.
