Last night, Aparna Nancherla made her first appearance on Conan. And in the process, she became the first Indian woman to perform stand up on American late night TV. IT'S A COLUMBUS DAY MIRACLE.
During the day, Nancherla is a writer for Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell and is enviably, devastatingly weird and hilarious on Twitter. Seriously.
I stopped to pat a dog on the street & it started pooping. It's like yeah dude you can totally let go around me— Aparna Nancherla (@aparnapkin) October 8, 2013
If you're in NYC, you can catch her performing around the City, and you probably should because — fangirl moment — she's one of my favorite comedians.
