Two Guys and some Girl: South Asian Comedy
Two Guys and some Girl: South Asian Comedy will be held in the heart of downtown Boston’s theatre district on October 1, 2011, hosted by two top-notch Indian standup comedians: Paul Varghese and Rajiv Satyal, along with Usha Govindarajulu, the skit writer. The two-hour long program will consist of two standup pieces by Paul and Rajiv separately as well as comedic skits written by Usha. Paul and Rajiv have extensive experience in standup comedy. All are invited to attend the best end of the year South Asian comedy in Boston.

Paul Varghese's act includes a number of observations about being Indian, providing outsider-looking-in and insider-looking-out commentary, while also exploring an array of topics and issues outside that realm. He was named by the Dallas Observer in 2007 as the 'Best Stand-up Comic in Dallas' and recently won the 2009 'Funniest Comic in Dallas' competition. Varghese has performed at the HBO Comedy Festival, the Montreal and Toronto's Just For Laughs Festivals and the TBS Comedy Festival. His TV credits include Telemundo 2's Loco Comedy Jam, NBC's Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central's Live At Gotham and he can be seen this October 17th on Showtime's Russell Peters Presents.

Rajiv got his start as an Indian comedian from Ohio whose witty, universal, and TV-clean act resonates with Middle America by covering everything from racial issues to soap bottles to his favorite topic – himself. This former engineer and P&G marketer has repeatedly opened for Dave Chappelle, Kevin Nealon, Tim Allen, and also for Russell Peters in sold-out theaters across the U.S.A. He has performed everywhere from Boston to Bangalore and has been featured in The Wall Street Journal and The Los Angeles Times. You can find Rajiv regularly performing at the Laugh Factory and Improvs in Los Angeles, acting in commercials, doing improv, on TV, on XM and Sirius Satellite Radio, admiring himself on his Funny Indian Fan Club on Facebook, and on www.funnyindian.com, where you can view clips, his blog, and his rants and podcasts.

Usha Govindarajulu got her start as a writer, but has been involved with theater work and dance productions on/off since college. She became more involved with theater after producing the play, Bend It Like Auntie, which she had written, in October 2005. In 2006, she directed and wrote skits for a theatrical event, NetSAP Comedy Mela, held at the Comedy Connection. She was an assistant producer for the highly successful play, Indian Ink in collaboration with Small World Big Sky Productions. Her last production was Rape, Regret, and Retribution in conjuction with SETU in 2008.
