The Setup: Comedy at Genghis Cohen
The Setup is a stand up showcase curated by your hosts Richard Sarvate and Abhay Nadkarni. We focus on having diverse lineups in terms of both comedy styles and backgrounds.
"One of the best comedy nights in America" - Interrobang
Stand up comedy has a long history of being performed in the back rooms of Chinese restaurants. We're continuing that tradition by doing comedy in the back room of Genghis Cohen in West Hollywood. You can enjoy a delicious dinner and then head into the performance space to hear jokes from the top comedians in Los Angeles.
Thursday, March 1st will feature:
Barry Rothbart (Conan)
Kevin Camia (Live at Gotham)
Grant Cotter (MTV)
Aiko Tanaka (Fast and the Furious)
Griff Pippin (Hollywood Improv)
You hosts for the evening are Richard Sarvate and Abhay Nadkarni:
Richard Sarvate is a stand up comedian based in Los Angeles. His comedy covers his experience as a first generation Indian immigrant, why he quit his 10 year career in Silicon Valley to pursue comedy, and what it was like growing up with a schizophrenic mother.
Abhay Nadkarni immigrated from India to America to pursue a graduate degree at USC. While in LA he caught the stand up fever and began performing. His comedy consists of hilariously accurate impressions and thoughtful observations on the immigrant experience.
