Born and brought up in Amritsar, Sharma migrated to Mumbai at the start of the new millennium to try his hand at comedy. He first gained recognition as a contestant on various television comedy shows and later started hosting such programmes. He currently hosts The Kapil Sharma Show.
Sharma first appeared on celluloid in Mumbai Se Aaya Mera Dost (2003) where he made a cameo. He then played a supporting role in Anees Bazmee’s It’s My Life (2020), which stars Harman Baweja, Genelia Deshmukh and Nana Patekar. Although the film went on the floors in 2008, it was released recently. The comedian also played one of the 51 comic actors in Sunil Pal’s movie Bhavnao Ko Samjho (2010).
