Aparna Nancherla is a comedian and general silly billy. Her sense of humor is dry, existential, and absurd, with notes of uncalled-for whimsy. Think a wine you didn’t order.

She was featured in the second season of Netflix’s The Standups. .

In 2016, she released her debut album, Just Putting It Out There, on Tig Notaro’s label, Bentzen Ball Records, and recorded a half hour special for Comedy Central. In that same year, Elle’s Women in Comedy Issue, featured Aparna as one of the most exciting new voices to hit the comedy scene.
