I call myself the, “Funny Brown Girl”, and that’s exactly who I am. A globally touring stand-up comedian, I have performed on stages from New York to Saigon. Much of my comedy is focused on my relationship with my South Asian (Indian) / Persian Muslim parents. I also draw on my dating experiences as an intelligent, beautiful woman, and have no problem spilling all. “She’s got balls,” observed a comedy patron. A sarcastic young woman, I enjoy sharing my experiences and observations of intolerable, ignorant people in a fun-witted dialogue.
In 2017, I was a finalist in HBO’s Comedy Wings Competition, a semi-finalist in Issa Rae’s Freshwave TV writing competition, and opened for Arsenio Hall. In the same year, I also performed at Laugh Your Asheville Off, Toronto’s SheDot Comedy Festival, and the Boston Women in Comedy Festival. I am a previous winner of the Orlando Improv Clash of the Comics and the Brickell Comedy Festival. I’ve also been featured at the Out of Bounds in Austin, Laugh Fest in Grand Rapids, and the World Series of Comedy in Vegas.
I have performed alongside national headliners, including Arsenio Hall, Rodney Perry, Mitch Fatel, Carlos Mencia, John Henton, Gary Gulman, Shane Mauss, Myq Kaplan, Esther Ku, Joe Wong, Turae Gordon, and Michelle Buteau. I have also featured for Hari Kondabolu, Azhar Usman, Alycia Cooper, Gina Brillion, and Jonathon Gates.
You can catch me on iHeartRadio’s Monsters in the Morning and on my podcast – Creative Breakthrough – where I interview successful creative entrepreneurs!
