Performance by comedian and storyteller Vijai Nathan thanks to our “Wake Up Call!” partners at Little Salon!
Vijai’s stories have been featured on NPR’s “Snap Judgment” And “Invisibila” Live. She’s is a contributing writer for The Washington Post Magazine’s Date Lab.
She has performed throughout the U.S. and was featured at festivals in Montreal, Singapore, South Africa, London, and Trinidad. She has the honor of being one of the few South Asian artists to be invited to perform at the Kennedy Center, Smithsonian, Library of Congress & Constitution Hall in Washington D.C.
Vijai’s humor springs from her experiences of growing up as a “foreigner” in America- despite the fact she was born and raised in a suburb of Washington D.C. She lovingly and hilariously talks about growing up as an Indian in America, dating, cultural clashes with her parents, and the racism she dealt with as a child and now as a comedian.
