Image of comedian and actress Aparna Nancherla

Aparna Nancherla is an author and actress who has provided a much-needed voice in the comedy scene since 2006. "Her sense of humor is dry, existential, and absurd, with notes of uncalled-for whimsy. Think a wine you didn’t order." Aparna weaves comedy into moments of vulnerability, strength, and ridiculousness and has paved a way for herself in a male-dominated field. Learn more about Aparna here.

A graduate of The Juilliard School, Monica is the Co-Founder of Sing for Hope, a leading arts peace corps that creates programs such as the Sing for Hope Pianos in public spaces from the Bronx to Beirut that promote the mission of art for all. She is the daughter of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Muhammad Yunus. Learn more about Monica here.
