Akanksha

a Los Angeles-based writer and comedian from Mumbai, India. From code-switching and assimilation to dating and mental health, Akanksha’s writing explores and brings levity to all dimensions of her experience as a young immigrant.

Akanksha produces a monthly comedy show in Los Angeles and does standup all over LA. She has also performed internationally in Toronto and Mumbai.

She also shares thrifted outfits and anecdotes from her mental health journey (set to 90s Bollywood music) on Tiktok!

When she’s not saying embarrassing things on stage or pretending to write at an overpriced coffee shop, Akanksha enjoys hobbies that cater to her introverted writer roots like puzzling, audiobooks and swiping left on himbos.
