Facial Recognition Comedy is a nationally touring stand-up show, weekly podcast, and expanding comedy brand featuring female-identifying performers of South Asian descent. Our goal is to showcase the vast diversity within our demographic and combat tokenism. We are here to dispel the Hollywood myth that there can only be one type of minority entertainer per project. Basically, this show was created to let everyone know that we are NOT the same person!

In 2018, Facial Recognition Comedy was listed as one of New York Times' top 5 shows to see at the 2018 New York Comedy Festival, and has been featured in Vulture and Splitsider. In 2019, Facial Recognition Comedy was featured in VoyageLA and Daily Beast. We've sold out shows in Los Angeles, New York City, Houston, San Francisco, and San Diego, and sold out our SF Sketchfest shows two years in a row! Past performers have included Aparna Nancherla and Russell Peters guest-hosting. The weekly Facial Recognition Comedy podcast is available on iTunes, Spotify, SoundCloud, Google Play, Stitcher, iHeartRadio, PlayerFM, and Spreaker, with a new episode every Tuesday. Check out our calendar for upcoming shows and events! With Zahra Ali, Fizaa Dosani, Reem Edan, Pallavi Gunalan, Zahra Noorbakhsh, Abhay(early show), and more. ($25, All Ages)
