On Oct. 10, The Guru presented a comedy show hosted by Nam Vu and Omar Finley. Each month the venue presents a comedy show to visiting comedians from around the country. Krish Mohan was a headliner for the event.
The theme of the show was “Approaching Happiness.” Krish Mohan wanted to get a positive message to his audience about the issues in immigration, race, agnosticism, sexual obsession and police reform.
Mohan said “It’s important that we learn to laugh at things, the theme and message I want to get out there is about taking stigma we over stigmatize here in American and just make it laughable.”
In Mohan’s act, “How Not to Fit In,” he narrated how he culturally doesn’t fit in with Americans and the Indians in America.
“Comedy is one thing that helps with my anxiety; I’m a very anxious person,” Mohan said.
Mohan was born in India, and moved to Pittsburg at age 8 and now resides in Washington D.C. He’s been doing comedy for 11 years and tries to accomplish at least 20 shows each month traveling around the country.
