PRE SALE TIX @ $15 UNTIL FEB 23
Brown Laughs Matter brings to the Tempe Improv, a night of quality stand-up comedy peppered with immigrant humor. Headlining the night is one of America’s topmost Indian comedians, Rajiv Satyal.
Rajiv Satyal is a Los Angeles-based comedian/host, whose witty, universal, and TV-clean act resonates around the world by covering everything from racial issues to soap bottles to his favorite topic — himself. This University of Cincinnati engineer and former P&G marketer has toured with Dave Chappelle, Tim Allen, Kevin Nealon, and Russell Peters. Rajiv even hosted Dave Chappelle’s very first show after his much-publicized African hiatus. He co-created the world-touring Make Chai Not War, a Hindu/Muslim stand-up show that toured seven Indian cities and was sponsored by the U.S. State Dept.
Satyal performs weekly at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood. He has garnered 50 million+ online views and been featured on/in NBC, NPR, Nickelodeon, Fx, Netflix, Bob & Tom, Times Now, Zee TV, Pandora, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Variety, Advertising Age, The Times of India, The Huffington Post, and The LA Times.
He made the massively viral I AM INDIAN video (200,000 YouTube hits in a week), which was shared by Bollywood stars and used to introduce the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Shanghai and Dubai.
Rajiv wrote No Man’s Land, a 100-minute one-person show about his dating life that sold out all performances from LA to NY to San Francisco to Cincinnati. You can find more about him at facebook.com/funnyindian and rajivsatyal.com.
Joining Rajiv, will be new up and coming comedians from San Diego and LA, Neil Chakravarty (Sun Devil for life, making a return to his university town), Neil Singh and others. Follow:facebook.com/brownlaughsmatter for more
