Spontaneous, self-deprecating, erratic and politically incorrect comic, Ahmad Ashik is regarded as one of the finest stand up comedians in the scene right now. His journey began in 2010, while pursuing his higher studies in the UK. Let's see if the spontaneous comedian holds his own on this week's One Minute Please!

It's when people don't laugh at your jokes. I don't remember that feeling though, as it didn't happen for the past 3 years. (Laughs)
What is one word you would use to describe yourself?
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I wanted to be a veterinarian.
Where do you want to see yourself in 5 years?
I want to take the art of standup comedy to a bigger audience here, and help it become mainstream.
