The fierce pride in India is real, although it’s worth noting Akaash’s
middle school principal thought he was Mexican for all three years. Such
was life growing up in suburban north Dallas. Home.
Akaash left home
to help people. He wanted to be a doctor like his uncle and graduated
pre-med from Austin College. Naturally, the next step was to move to Los
Angeles and become a comedian.
There is no easy explanation for this
leap of faith. It was an idea that always flickered in his mind. Even
when he was young, Akaash saw comedy differently. He appreciated the
nuances and broke it down to a science, fascinated by what worked and
what didn’t.
The first time he performed in front of his friends in
high school, he bombed. Of course, it’s a little more disheartening when
the laughs don’t come while you happen to be on the mic at The Comedy
Store in L.A.
You know, The Comedy Store, stomping grounds of Pryor,
Seinfeld, Leno and… Singh? Akaash bombed there so badly that it was,
well, almost funny. Before that night, he hopped on stage once every few
months and called himself a comedian. After that night, he developed a
singular focus on scrapping for as much stage time as possible while
writing incessantly.
