Both Nancherla and Skinner are former writers on the beloved and bereaved “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell”
APARNA NANCHERLA has an intimidating name, but don’t be scared! She’s a joke entrepreneur who pedals in both writing and performance (AKA scribble-scrabble and jibber-jabber).
Aparna’s comedic goggles are dry and observational, and her act is sprinkled with absurdist wit and a whimsical take on the world.
Her credits include Conan, LA Weekly’s “12 Comedy Acts to Watch”, Serial Optimist’s “10 Comics You Must Know”, Splitsider’s “10 Up-and-Coming Comedians on Each Coast”, 2013 New Face at the Just for Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival, the WTF Podcast with Marc Maron, the Nerdist Podcast with Chris Hardwick, Last Comic Standing, SXSW, NPR, Laughspin, Funny or Die, Reader’s Digest, The Huffington Post, The Washington Post Magazine, TimeOut NY, and Slate V.
ELIZA SKINNER has written for Showtime, Xbox, and Joan Rivers’ Fashion Police.
She has performed all over the country including SXSW, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and the New York Comedy Festival. She has opened for Patton Oswalt and Bobcat Goldthwait.
Eliza was a principal lead in Eugene Mirman’s Comedy Central pilot, EUGENE!, and she has portrayed nasty white ladies on stage (Jem! A Truly Outrageous Parody), film (Last of the Great Romantics), and TV (TBS’s Are We There Yet?). Her solo show, Eliza Skinner is: SHAMELESS ran for over a year at the Upright Citizens Brigade theater in NY and LA, and at the Comedy Central Stage in LA. She has written and directed numerous digital shorts which have quickly become viral favorites on Funny Or Die and College Humor. She is a member of the UCB LA weekend house team Diamond Lion. And once RuPaul said she was “She-larious”, which was pretty dope.
She has appeared on @midnight and The Pete Holmes Show
