Aparna Nancherla

Aparna Nancherla has an intimidating name, but don’t be scared! In fact, she’s quite approachable onstage, from a heckler’s perspective. She’s a joke entrepreneur who pedals in both writing and performance (street names: scribble-scrabble and jibber-jabber). She is currently writing on the show Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell on FX.

Her artistic journey took off in Washington D.C. (it’s all about the Washingtons), but she now makes her way in Los Angeles and NYC, the dastardly duo of showbiz.

Her other credits include Last Comic Standing, NBC Stand Up for Diversity Finalist, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, SF Sketchfest, the Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival, the Great American Comedy Festival, NPR, Reader’s Digest, The Huffington Post, Timeout NY, and the WTF Podcast with Marc Maron.
