Live Stand Up Comedy show, “Politely Angry”
Nov 12 @ 7:00 pm
The Block
Described as “dangerously perceptive”, this new hour of Stand Up uses comedy, storytelling & historic anecdotes to address issues and topics that aren’t normally heard or talked about in the mainstream, such as classism, competition, organized religion & more.
I’ve been featured at various Fringe Festivals in Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, and St. Louis, where my comedy was highly rated and reviewed. I’ve also won the “Audience Choice” Award in the 2018 Pittsburgh Fringe Festival!
This new show has been called “a welcome reprieve from the celluloid black hole of political humor!” The Washington Post has described me as “…frequently clever if not uproariously funny” and NUVO in Indianapolis has said my material is an “honest, funny approach“.
Politely Angry: Krish Mohan explores various social, political and philosophical issues, such as war culture, immigration, economics and more with his quick wit & quirky attitude. Described as “dangerously perceptive and honest, but somehow still loving and inclusive” by venues across the country, Krish’s show will make you think and laugh at the same time.
