Isha Patnaik

Isha was recently featured in HBO's Women in Comedy Festival and runs Affirmative Reaction, Boston's only stand up show dedicated to Asian and Asian American voices. She was also a runner up in ImprovBoston's Stand Up Throwdown and performed at PIT's Femme Fest.

Isha is a self-proclaimed "white people anthropologist" whose comedy touches on everything from racism to The Parent Trap to being an excellent elementary school student. She hopes to one day perform her comedy songs about colonialism for the Queen of England (please contact her if you know the booker for Buckingham Palace).

Isha is also an accomplished improviser and sketch comedian. She has performed on ImprovBoston's Harold Night and with the ImprovBoston National Touring Company. When she's not doing comedy, Isha likes to attend Moana themed spin classes and work as a user experience researcher.
