NCCAF 2017 Presents:
Aparna Nancherla with Hannah Strom + Brandy Brown
2/18/2017 9PM at The ArtsCenter (Chapel Hill, NC)
Aparna Nancherla is delighted you are here. She’s a comedian of the stand-up variety, but can often be seen sitting. She recently wrote for Late Night with Seth Meyers on NBC. You can also see her on the current season of Inside Amy Schumer on Comedy Central and on the upcoming season of Love on Netflix. In addition, she currently hosts the long-running popular underground New York comedy show, Whiplash at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater on Monday nights at 11 p.m.
Her artistic journey took off in Washington D.C. (it’s all about the Washingtons), but she now resides in the biggest apple in the gosh darn world.
Aparna’s sense of humor tends toward the dry, observational variety, but do be warned, her act runs rampant with absurdism and unregulated whimsy.
In addition to being a 2013 New Face at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, she has also been on numerous lists such as Vulture‘s “50 Comedians You Should Know in 2015”, Marie Claire‘s Funniest Women of 2015, Time Magazine‘s 140 Top Tweeters of 2014, Jezebel’s Comedy Queens of 2014, Time Out NY’s “10 Funniest Women in New York”, Flavorpill’s “11 Essential Young Comedians in New York City”, LA Weekly‘s “12 Comedy Acts to Watch”, Serial Optimist’s “10 Comics You Must Know”, and Splitsider’s “10 Up-and-Coming Comedians on Each Coast”. She has also been featured in in Laughspin, BUST Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Elle India, Reader’s Digest, The Huffington Post, and The Washington Post Magazine.
You may have heard Aparna on the WTF Podcast with Marc Maron, the Nerdist Podcast with Chris Hardwick, NPR’s “Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me!”, Radio Q on CBC, or seen her at countless festivals such as the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in Australia, SXSW, SF Sketchfest, OutsideLands, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and the Great American Comedy Festival.
Aparna is also an experienced improviser, having studied at Washington Improv Theater, the Upright Citizen’s Brigade in both NY and LA, and the Groundlings, as well as Lesly Kahn’s school of acting. She may yet perform with latent-but-powerful independent improv group Mythical Newsroom. She has also acted in various sketches, web videos and series, pilots, and short films.
Unsolicited Testimonial: “Oh geez louise Aparna, you are a unicorn in a field full of basic ass horses.”-My friend & colleague, the great Ahmed Huidobro
