Richard Sarvate was born in the Bay Area to parents of Indian descent. He worked as a computer programmer for ten years before making the full time leap to stand up comedy. His jokes deal with topics silly and serious. From making fun of the way people order at restaurants to dealing with mental illness in his family. He's been featured in SF Sketchfest and has done a national tour of India.
Abhay Nadkarni moved from South India to South Central Los Angeles to pursue grad school. While studying at USC his experiences as an immigrant spurred him to take to the stage. His perspective on American culture given his Indian background is fodder for plenty of stand up. He's appeared on CBS, "America from Abroad" with Rob Delaney, and is the co-creator of the Desi Comedy Fest, the largest South Asian comedy festival in America.
