“an honest, funny approach to describe how his expectations of moving to America didn’t line up with reality; how he has handled racism…; his relationship with his parents who raised him to be a devout Hindu, yet he is no longer faithful; and even sex education” -NUVO (Indianapolis)
“Mohan’s material is frequently clever if not uproariously funny” Roger Caitlin of the Washington Post
“If you appreciate comedians that deliver a message with style and truth, and make you LOL while they’re delivering the message, then go see the Indian Comedian, unless of course…you’re racist.” -Randy Clark from IndyFringe Talks
“he is a thinking man’s comedian and an astute one at that.” -Tom Alvarez of the Examiner
“a playful, provocative stand-up routine” -The DCist
“wry observations about how he’s treated in America as an immigrant, though he uses where he was born and what he looks like as a jumping-off point, not a crutch” -IndyStar
“‘touchy’ subjects are addressed with a personal approach from lifelong experience” -Ben Daniels of the DC Metro Theater Arts
“His insights on racism and alienation are presented with a light-hearted touch, which can be very difficult to pull off, especially in our current climate.” -Wendy Carson of Plays with John & Wendy
Audiences have called Krish’s show “brilliant”, “hilarious” and “refreshing” as he “skewers mainstream American ignorance: a nation of foreigners doesn’t seem to know what to make of them”.
