About Aparna Nancherla

A self-described “scrunched up napkin with recyclable dreams" on Twitter, Aparna Nancherla is a rising female comedic star who first appeared on the short-lived but loved Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. The New York-based comedian has written for Late Night with Seth Meyers and is now on the standup circuit. She’s opened for big acts like John Oliver and Dave Attell and appeared on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Her Twitter account is a lesson in observational humor—"’Hmmm, 15 exclamation points or 5000?’ -girl texts"—with her @aparnapkin tweets making multiple “best of" lists.
