The Afternoon Carriage House Salon Continues!: Dhaya Lakshminarayanan - Amazing Storyteller and Comedian
Exciting news! The next event at the "Afternoon Carriage House Salon" will feature Dhaya Lakshminarayanan, a storyteller, comedian, performance artist and a TV host. She will be reading/telling a true story which is the template for her short film script that was a Second Round pick at The Austin Film Festival.
As a comedian, Dhaya's stand-up album DHAYATRIBE debuted at #2 on iTunes. She is the recipient of the Liz Carpenter Award for Political Comedy (awarded to Samantha Bee and Wanda Sykes) and Comedy Central Asia's "Ultimate Comedy Challenge" filmed in Singapore. She has told stories on NPR's Snap Judgment, hosts the monthly Moth in San Francisco which defines story telling as a vital tool in creating a world sustained by empathy, understanding, and community; a process our society is particularly in need of at this time. KQED named her one of their 20 Women to Watch. She was also the host of the Emmy-award TV show "High School Quiz Show" on PBS affiliate WGBH. As a writer she has been featured in the SF Chronicle, Bay Area Book Festival, and is a proud member of her union, the Writers Guild of America West.
