Prologue Profiles

"For me it was very one foot in front of the other, let's see where this goes but by no stretch of the imagination was I like, 'Oh this is what you're going to do with your life.' It was very tentative." - Aparna Nancherla

During college Aparna (@aparnapkin) found herself directionless and depressed. Aparna is now a full-time comedian and writer who has written for Totally Biased with W Kamau Bell on FX and appeared on Conan. Since our interview Aparna has written for the Late Show with Seth Myers.

You'll hear Aparna discuss how she turned comedy into a career, the power of patience, and that one of the biggest keys to success is just showing up.
