Rajiv Satyal

 

THE MAN IN THE MIDDLE

 

Fri, Jan 17  8 pm

 

Tickets: $25

Los Angeles based comic Rajiv Satyal brings his latest one-man show to Skokie, where he sets his sights on American Politics.  It's clean and appropriate for ages 9+ (the average intellectual age of our politicians). Co-written by Seinfield writter Pat Hazell, the show tries to make sense of the current political structure as Rajiv tries to make sense of how his politics can differ so greatly from his Dad's.

 

As an Indian/American this show is Rajiv's love letter to his country.

 

Rajiv Satyal:

is a Los Angeles-based comedian/host.  His TV-clean act has made him one of the most versatile comedians working today.  Rajiv had an unusual entry into standup, doing his act for then-World No. 1 tennis player Pete Sampras in a locker room.  Satyal has some interesting claims to fame:  he opened for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in front of 17,000 people.  He made the massively viral I AM INDIAN video, which was shared by Bollywood stars and used to introduce the Indian Prime Minister in Shanghai and Dubai.  He has opened for Russell Peters more than any other Indian comedian.  Rajiv even hosted Dave Chappelle’s very first show after his much-publicized African hiatus. Satyal performs weekly at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood.  He has garnered 50 million+ online views and been featured on/in NBC, NPR, Nickelodeon, Fx, Netflix, Bob & Tom, Times Now, Zee TV, Pandora, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Variety, Advertising Age, The Times of India, The Huffington Post, and The LA Times. Rajiv wrote No Man’s Land, a 100-minute one-person show about his dating life that sold out all performances from LA to NY to San Francisco to Cincinnati.  This show actually led to Satyal’s marriage, which itself had a comedic arc:  Rajiv proposed to his girlfriend while opening for Kevin Nealon, and at his wedding, Russell Peters finally opened for him.
