If Mitch Hedberg was born as an Indian woman, he'd be a lot like Aparna Nancherla. I spotted her first on Twitter and loved her silly, thoughtful non sequiturs. I even went ahead and friended her on Facebook for kicks. And she was gracious enough to add me and every time I log in on Facebook now, I am laughing my heart out. Like Hedberg, she has this nonchalant passive delivery, except the punchlines are crafted with razor precision. More than often she says things, which take you by complete surprise. Case in point - the opening to her stand-up act 'I'm surprised that I'm a comedian too. Don't worry, we will get through together.'
And here's her New York moment that could have happened in any big city.
