Tom Thakkar

Tom Thakkar is a comedian, podcaster, and writer living in Los Angeles, CA. He started his career in Bloomington, Indiana, where he was born and raised, a half Indian man with a deadbeat Indian father who he never met. Tom moved up the midwest circuit, and was named a New Face by the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, and quickly moved to New York, and eventually to Los Angeles. He's now been seen on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, CONAN, Comedy Central Presents, This Week at the Comedy Cellar, and much much more. In New York, he became a regular at the world famous Comedy Cellar, and works at almost every club in the city. He can also be heard as a regular on everybody's favorite new podcast "Are You Garbage," as well as on "We Might Be Drunk," "The Honeydew," "Doug Loves Movies," "Never Not Funny," "All Fantasy Everything," and more. Tom also hosted the Comedy Central podcast, "Stand Up with Tom Thakkar," and popular comedy/music podcast "Stand By Your Band," with Tommy McNamara. 

On top of stand up and podcasting, Tom acted in the award winning short film "Sofa So Good" and wrote and appeared on the SyFy comedy sketch show, "The Movie Show." Right now, Tom can be seen touring around the country performing stand up almost every week, and on his new YouTube series "Tom Thakkar's Road Diary."
