Comedian Aparna Nancherla Parlays Twitter Fame Into Headlining

Comedian Aparna Nancherla has brought her humor to many mediums. She’s a stand-up comic, has a YouTube series, and has written for shows like Late Night with Seth Meyers and Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. But like many comedians these days it was Twitter that really brought her a big audience. She’s been listed by Time magazine and College Humor as one of the funniest people tweeting. She also somehow manages to make her mental health candid, light-hearted and funny. 

We talk to Nancherla about walking the line of sad and funny.
