About Nasim Pedrad

Actress and comedian best known for her stint on Saturday Night Live, Nasim Pedrad was back in a big way in 2019. Nasim stole the show as the comedic foil to Jasmine in last year’s Aladdin remake, receiving positive critical reviews and social media buzz. She also launched her own show, Chad, that was picked up by TBS, where she will play a 14 year old pubescent Persian boy desperately trying to fit in while overcoming cultural differences. Of course, the comedian has no problem fitting in on Instagram, where she connects with her 345K+ fans and offers them a look behind the scenes in her day to day life.
