Most recently, Abby headlined at New York Comedy Festival 2023. She also hosts a comedy show at Hotel 50 Bowery every Thursday.
A stand up show and solo act in one, “How to Embarrass Your Immigrant Parents” is a biting and irreverent storytelling experience that explores a pertinent universal theme: wanting to understand your parents but struggling to see eye-to-eye. Throughout the course of an hour, Abby takes the viewer on an intimate, hilarious, soul-bearing journey about her struggles with mental health, fitting in, and finding common ground with the ones you love even after they’ve hurt you. Most importantly, it is a love letter to Abby’s Indian heritage and her wonderful parents, without whom none of this would be possible. No gimmicky Indian accents, guaranteed.
The show explores sensitive issues surrounding mental health, viewer discretion is advised. Recommended ages 13+.
