Friedlander (NBC’s 30 Rock), Todd Barry (Netflix’s “Crowd Work Tour”), Hasan Minhaj (The Daily
Show), and Russell Peters (Outsourced). In particular, Sachin has repeatedly performed with

Sachin’s TV-clean comedy derives from his upbringing and personal experiences including his
loveable, but overbearing South Asian parents, his nerdy high school tales, and the joys of dating in
a pandemic. Learn more about Sachin at www.sachinshaan.com or @sachinshaan on Instagram.
