5. Kapil Sharma
Undoubtedly the best comedian in the country now, Kapil Sharma is naturally blessed with humour and wit. Though his comic capers can be annoying as hell filled with regressive and sexist jokes and acts one can certainly not ignore Kapil’s talent. The stand-up comedian cum actor’s quick thinking and effortless spontaneity make him delightful. His interactions, be it with big celebs appearing on the show or any commoners is pure gold.
6. Sheldon Cooper
Was That Sarcasm? The fictional character from popular CBS TV series The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon Cooper, played by Jim Parsons displays unique contradicting features.

One can understand this highly intelligent but socially inept person’s point of view with this conversation – Sheldon: Why are you crying? Penny: Because I’m stupid. Sheldon: That’s no reason to cry. One cries because one is sad. For example, I cry because others are stupid, and that makes me sad. *Slow Clap*
