Biswa Kalyan has shared that every new show teaches one about the world and how the person is as well. According to him, doing Comicstaan was a great experience. He said everybody secretly judges comedy but the challenge was to do it in the public where one’s opinion really matters. He shared that they can laugh at times but ultimately they have to rate it which required a lot of introspection. He has said  “Every new show teaches you a lot – about the world and who you are. Doing Comicstaan was a great experience completely. We all secretly judge comedy, but it was a challenge to do it publicly as your opinions really matter. You can laugh but to come down to a number and rate an act, it needed a lot of introspection.”
