“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.”
Nishy XL is a first-generation Indian/Pakistani-American comedian who has performed at clubs and various corporate and private events. She's a former sketch writer for the Second City Hollywood, and as an SC house cast member, she wrote and performed a comedic sketch revue. 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 Gutty's Indiana Clean Comedy Challenge. She also regularly opens and hosts shows for Dat Phan, the original winner of Last Comic Standing.
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.
