He spent time studying currency exchange and the stock market which turned out to be his ticket to financial freedom.

Proving to be a smart business move, this operation made a lot of revenue in very little time. Next, Milad began to work in the tourism field on Kish Island as he continued his education and graduated with a degree in computer science.
Combining his technical and trading skills, Milad launched is now a young millionaire. With money struggles behind him, he was able to pursue another love: comedy.

Today, Milad is one of Instagram’s most popular and loved performers. He specializes in improvisational satire, frequently involving other people in his activities to make the gags even funnier. The improv aspect makes Milad’s comedy more relatable and believable. It is also a riot to watch people fall for his gags.

Improv, especially satirical improv, is all about technique. Milad is a master of this as he combines comedy with storytelling, plus his comic timing is impeccable. One can only wonder how he keeps a straight face during some of his stunts as that requires a separate drama performance.
In addition to his startups and online businesses, Milad makes a very comfortable living with his comedy performances through Instagram and live shows. His creative mind delivers scenarios that audiences will be familiar with, thus increasing the level of understanding between one another. From financial difficulty to becoming a millionaire, Milad came out of a vicious cycle with a smile on his face and that of countless others.
