He started his career as a lecturer at Allahabad University, soon started taking part in various Kavi sammelan (poetry gatherings), and with his tongue-in-cheek political commentary, made a place for himself amidst leading humorists, hasya kavi of the 1970s and 1980s, like Kaka Hathrasi, Pradeep Chaubey and Ashok Chakradhar.

He became a regular feature of the annual kavi sammelan on Doordarshan, state-run TV channel, around the Holi festival. He also acted in a number of Hindi films, like Uphaar (1971), Chitchor (1976), Chameli Ki Shaadi (1986) and Kareeb (1998)
