Mona Shaikh is the first Pakistani female comedian to have her own show at The Comedy Store, called Minority Reportz. Mona often commentates on social conflicts between the South Asian and American cultures. She started out her venture into stand-Up comedy in NYC. It was there where she appeared as an actress in various commercials for companies like Kodak, Wal-Mart, Cablevision, and Deutsche Bank. Now, as a Los Angeles resident, Mona performs at different venues in the LA area including The Laugh Factory, Ice House Pasadena, and Hollywood Improv. Breaking down the boundaries through her vivid point of view and sense of humor towards socially constrained topics such as religion, sex, and politics has been the key to her success. In fact, she was recently featured in Newsweek for being considered one of the most outspoken female comedians of our time. She holds no fear in reference to speaking up for what she believes in.
It’s obvious when she’s on stage that she loves what she does because she’s passionate about it.
“Comedy is that one great medium to connect with folks around the world about topics that might be crazy, controversial and or taboo in a comedic way. Comedy spares no one…and that’s why I love it so much.” – Mona Shaikh
Shaikh’s show Minority Reportz is monthly and luckily the next one will be on Wed. June 22nd at 10pm. So get out there and see her! Minority Reportz is now also in Huntington Beach and Long Beach as well. Additionally, Mona will also be going to the Edinburgh Festival in August. U&C Magazine is elated to be associated with such an amazing comedic voice.
