an honest, funny approach to describe how his expectations of moving to America didnt line up with reality; how he has handled racism; his relationship with his parents who raised him to be a devout Hindu, yet he is no longer faithful; and even sex education -NUVO (Indianapolis)
Mohans material is frequently clever if not uproariously funny Roger Caitlin of the Washington Post
If you appreciate comedians that deliver a message with style and truth, and make you LOL while theyre delivering the message, then go see the Indian Comedian, unless of courseyoure racist. -Randy Clark from IndyFringe Talks
he is a thinking mans comedian and an astute one at that. -Tom Alvarez of the Examiner
a playful, provocative stand-up routine -The DCist
wry observations about how hes treated in America as an immigrant, though he uses where he was born and what he looks like as a jumping-off point, not a crutch -IndyStar
touchy subjects are addressed with a personal approach from lifelong experience -Ben Daniels of the DC Metro Theater Arts
His insights on racism and alienation are presented with a light-hearted touch, which can be very difficult to pull off, especially in our current climate. -Wendy Carson of Plays with John & Wendy
Audiences have called Krishs show brilliant, hilarious and refreshing as he skewers mainstream American ignorance: a nation of foreigners doesnt seem to know what to make of them.
