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.
