desi comics


Written by: Joseph Santiago

It all started in a Whole Foods at Columbus Circle where several Indian comics would come together for a writing session and ramen. After several of these sessions (and several bowls of ramen), comedians Akaash Singh, Tushar Singh, Alingon Mitra, and KC Arora decided it was time to do shows together. That was the creation of the American Born Desi Comics (ABDCs)

The ABDCs started with a weekday show at Caroline’s on Broadway. It sold out and that is when they decided they would do it again. After several packed out shows at Caroline’s on Broadway, the ABDCs decided it was time to take their talents on the road. After doing shows in the tri-state, they decided they would go somewhere they thought they would be well received, the deep South.

The Deep South Tour was a smashing success with shows in Pittsburgh (not so south), DC, North Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama. The tour even introduced closer to the show where all four comics would take the stage along with questions, guests and hilarious riffs.

After the successful Deep South tour, the ABDCs decided it was time to go back to where they were “really from” and do shows in India. The ABDCs were met with open arms as they had FOUR SOLD OUT shows in Mumbai, India.

Now the American Born Desi Comics are coming back to Caroline’s on Broadway to shows on April 26-27 (both at 7:30 pm) along with special guests.

Alingon Mitra (Conan, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Last Comic Standing)
