Approaching Happiness: What makes us happy? Comedian Krish Mohan explores the idea of Happiness and perceptions of mental illness in todays society. He removing the stigmas associated with immigration, drugs, gun control, racism and being accountable for the problems weve created, all revolving around the subject of mental health. Will he find out how we can all approach happiness?

He focuses on idea based stand-up tackling race, religion, immigration, relationships, political and social issues. With his quirky attitude, charming personality, and intelligent humor, Krish captivates and engages audiences of all backgrounds. He has had a highly rated & hit IndyFringe & the Capital Fringe Festival show. He has been featured on NPR and in the Arch City Comedy Festival.

an honest, funny approach to describe how his expectations of moving to America didnt line up with reality; how he has handled racism; his relationship with his parents who raised him to be a devout Hindu, yet he is no longer faithful; and even sex education -NUVO (Indianapolis)

Mohans material is frequently clever if not uproariously funny Roger Caitlin of the Washington Post

If you appreciate comedians that deliver a message with style and truth, and make you LOL while theyre delivering the message, then go see the Indian Comedian, unless of courseyoure racist. -Randy Clark from IndyFringe Talks

he is a thinking mans comedian and an astute one at that. -Tom Alvarez of the Examiner

a playful, provocative stand-up routine -The DCist

wry observations about how hes treated in America as an immigrant, though he uses where he was born and what he looks like as a jumping-off point, not a crutch -IndyStar

touchy subjects are addressed with a personal approach from lifelong experience -Ben Daniels of the DC Metro Theater Arts

His insights on racism and alienation are presented with a light-hearted touch, which can be very difficult to pull off, especially in our current climate. -Wendy Carson of Plays with John & Wendy

Audiences have called Krishs show brilliant, hilarious and refreshing as he skewers mainstream American ignorance: a nation of foreigners doesnt seem to know what to make of them.
