THE COMEDIANS

Aparna Nancherla is a comedian and general silly billy. Her sense of humor is dry, existential, and absurd, with notes of uncalled-for whimsy. Think a wine you didn’t order. Her book, Unreliable Narrator: Me, Myself and Impostor Syndrome (Viking), was released on September 19, 2023. You can hear Aparna as the voice of Moon on Fox’s The Great North and Hollyhock on Netflix’s Bojack Horseman. You can watch her half-hour special on the second season of The Standups on Netflix, as well as appearances on Late Night with Stephen Colbert and Two Dope Queens on HBO.
