Sachin Shaan (current featured comedian for the DISH Network’s newest comedy channel, 2013 New York Comedy Festival) is a rising New York City-based comedian who performs every week and has appeared at all of the city’s top venues. He produces and hosts a hugely-attended monthly show at EastVille Comedy Club where comedy superstars Jim Gaffigan and Todd Barry regularly drop in and Gaffigan even follows Sachin on Twitter. An experienced and successful producer, Sachin also produces and hosts at The Cutting Room, a frequent Saturday Night Live after-party spot. Sachin is helping the famed music venue (past performers include U2, Billy Joel, Tony Bennett, and Idina Menzel) bring back stand-up comedy since re-opening in 2013.
Sachin’s TV-clean comedy derives entirely from his personal experiences ranging from practicing yoga, to wearing pocket squares, and to proudly eating gluten. Frequently an emcee, Sachin is a highly energetic host who uniquely does clean and effective crowd work.
Sachin also regularly performs alongside America’s top South Asian comedians, including hosting and opening for Rajiv Satyal (NBC, Nickelodeon, and NPR) during his 2015 national headlining tour at two stops in New York and at Chicago’s Laugh Factory. Sachin even opened for comedic legend Russell Peters at a private event.
