HOLLYWOOD IMPROV SEPT 3
My ex boss came to my show
VOTED 2023's BEST OF BURBANK FEST
Nishy would perform in a monochromatic lineup and explain that HR did not send her. So she began producing her show to benefit Non-Profits and built a space for women and ethnic comedians. Her shows are sold-out, with the most diverse hilarious lineups you'd find anywhere.
"My dream is to normalize hard-to-pronounce names.
We need to hear from underrepresented comedians who have history escaping totalitarian regimes, dangerous warzones, and people who regularly get mixed up with other races." Hire Nishy for your next event.
Nishy XL is a stand-up comedian and a first-generation Indian/Pakistani-American. Born in a war zone, she moved to LA at a young age, worked in corporate America, and found her calling on the stage. She's fresh off the inaugural Netflix is a Joke Festival.
She's a former sketch writer for the Second City Hollywood, and as an SC house cast member, she wrote and performed comedic sketch revues. In 2020 she placed in the top 10 in the National Comedy Open, was in the finals in the US Comedy Contest by Audience favorite vote, and took home the "Spirit of Comedy" Medal at the 2021 Clean Comedy Challenge. Comedy is her absolute passion. She hosts mics that help comedians hone their Stand Up and joke-writing skills. Nishy resides in Los Angeles with her baby, Samara Nova, and her husband, Austin.

“Nishy XL made me laugh out loud several times, as she explored the way Indian Americans are most typecast and stereotyped, as she dug deep in her own unique background coming from Kashmir, a disputed region between India and Pakistan. Extremely articulate, she is a natural leader for the group she is starting to empower international women in comedy.”
