An Indian born and raised in Texas, Akaash Singh is a nationally touring stand up comedian who is quickly working his way up to becoming a household name. His comedy is driven by cultural differences, an intense pride in his upbringing, and a desire to challenge the audience. His first spotlight came on MTV for their New Year's Bash in 2011, where he poked fun at the year's biggest pop culture stories alongside the cast of The Jersey Shore. MTV Desi then piloted him in "The Desi Weekly" in 2012, and in 2013, he was on the hit show "Failosophy". He was also on Fuse TV's highest rated show "Video on Trial", and he can currently be seen on "The Bracket" on the MSG Channel, as well as "Writer's Block", a web series on MTV Desi, which he wrote and created. This year, he can be seen on the HBO show "The Leftovers", and of course, Wild N' Out on MTV2.
Akaash is also a writer on multiple shows in the MTV Family, including "The Hook Up", as well as two MTV2 shows: "Jobs That Don't Suck" and the acclaimed "Charlamagne and Friends" talk show.
Akaash is respected for his relentless, thought-provoking brand of humor that catapults and energizes audiences who are left in laughter from the fearless honestly and his gripping stage presence.
