Described as “dangerously perceptive”, Radical Indian Stand Up Comedian Krish Mohan uses intelligent humor and sharp wit to take on issues like immigration, war, religion, race and various other hot button issues! Using historic anecdotes and storytelling Krish captivates audiences, while adding an optimistic, philosophical & sociological twist to tackle topics that you won’t see or hear covered on mainstream networks.
Krish regularly tours* with Redcated Tonight’s Lee Camp and has also been featured on Redacted Tonight VIP. He has also opened for other Nationally Touring Headliners such as Stewart Huff, Hari Kondabolu, Cameron Esposito, Dave Coulier and Dom Irrera. He regularly tours* and headlines at small clubs, listening rooms, black box theaters, coffeehouses, bars, house shows and DIY spaces across the US.
*Due to the global pandemic, Krish is not touring at the moment. BUT you can catch his weekly virtual one-man shows “Fork Full of Noodles – LIVE” on Fridays (resuming 2021). Each week Krish tackles a new socio-political topic in front of a live VIRTUAL audience, via Zoom. Touring will resume when it’s safe & responsible to hold events indoors!*
Mohan has also won the 2018 Audience Choice award at the Pittsburgh Fringe Festival and can be seen frequently at various Fringe Festivals across the country, where he has sold out shows and is an audience favorite.
“He is dangerously perceptive and honest, but somehow still loving and inclusive. I’ve never seen a comic quite like him.” – David Embree, Owner of Stage 18 in Fayetteville
“Comedy’s not always supposed to be comfortable, and Mohan warns at the top that he’s going to get weird and esoteric. He keeps his promise, but fortunately also keeps you laughing” -Alex Walsh of Pittsburgh In the Round
“[Approaching Happiness] is not out just for laughs (with unabashed dark humor) – Mohan wants to get us talking to each other about these issues as much as he does.” Cayleigh Bolinger of Pittsburgh In The Round
“touchy’ subjects are addressed with a personal approach from lifelong experience” -Ben Daniels of the DC Metro Theater Arts
“If you appreciate comedians that deliver a message with style and truth, and make you LOL while they’re delivering the message, then go see the Indian Comedian, unless of course…you’re racist.” -Randy Clark from IndyFringe Talks
“He has a more dynamic style than just talking about politics. Mohan showcased his chops as a storyteller with a single thread of jokes related to Indian culture that had the audience fully engaged. However, this story was not just a straight street, but one interconnected with alleys and interludes that Mohan would occasionally guide the audience into to keep us on our toes. From imperialism to money to tourism to bodily fluids, Mohan finds a way to weave dozens of interesting jokes into a central narrative in a way that is cohesive enough to make me want to walk back down that street again, confident that I’ll pick up something new.” Max Greenwald of WRGW Radio (George Washington University)
“Not holding back his opinions, Mohan’s subjects depicted society’s contemporary issues, including drug reform, prison for profit, climate change, mental illness and human accountability.” –Salmata Fall, Louisiana State University (Daily Revielle)
“a witty and accurate observation about modern day cultures.” Nick Holstein, West Virginia University (The Daily Athenaum)
