Pundits with Punchlines is a standup comedy show made up of comics of varied backgrounds, yet all of East Indian origins. The show exploits the lighter side of the human experience from the South Asian viewpoint, which is enjoyed by Indians and non Indians alike.
The 2013 line-up stars nothing but heavy hitters, including the founder of the show Tapan Trivedi, who was seen most recently on Russell Peters’ “Comics Without Borders” on Showtime. Kabir “Kabeezy” Singh appears fresh off his 6 city sold-out UK tour, and Samson Koletkar, the world’s only Jewish-Indian comedian and has traveled and performed all over the U.S., India and Canada. Shanti Charan, one of the funniest Indian female comedians in the nation, was the winner of the 2011 Bay Area Stand Up Comedy Competition and was named SF Weekly’s 2012 “Comic to watch on the way up.”
