He took up different stage names and performed at dance club amateur nights and then at a gay and lesbian club in Greenwich Village called ‘Page 3’. After appearing in the film ‘You Are What You Eat’, he landed up at the American sketch comedy TV show ‘Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In’ garnering popularity.
