HinduStand-up to bring Indian comics to Parlor Live

HinduStand-up will feature Washingtonian comics Imran G, Rohit Jhiangiani, Yogi Paliwal and Milan Patel at Parlor Live Comedy Club in Bellevue on Sept. 7.

Coming off the heels of his Jewish comedy showcase, Guilty Giggle, Issaquah-based comic and comedy promoter Erez Ben-Ari will present another showcase of comics waxing philosophic on their ethnic backgrounds.

HinduStand-up will feature Washingtonian comics Imran G, Rohit Jhiangiani, Yogi Paliwal and Milan Patel at Parlor Live Comedy Club in Bellevue on Sept. 7.

G is a Seattle native who works and performs regularly in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was a finalist in the 2012 Rooster T. Feathers Comedy Club competition and winner of the 2011 Walk The Plank competition held on Fisherman’s Wharf.

Jhiangiani is a local software entrepreneur who moonlights as a comic. He performs in the Eastside area, a recent gig being a spot in a stand-up showcase for the band Jingles May concert at the Kirkland Arts Center.

Paliwal is a cross-medium entertainer who, in addition to performing stand-up at venues like the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, has performed in San Francisco and Seattle Sketch Fest and appeared in various online video sketches. He describes his style as “intellectual absurdity.”

“My material isn’t smart,” Paliwal writes in his bio. “But you need to be smart to see how stupid the joke is.”

Paliwal and G were both performers in Stand-up for Diversity, an NBC showcase held at the Seattle Comedy Underground in 2011.

Patel is a native of Vancouver who has been known to perform at the Vermillion Art Gallery and Bar in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. He performed at the 2013 Laff Hole comedy show at Bumbershoot.
