She likes to describe herself as "an endearing and quirky laughter adventure" - but she suffers from multiple delusions. Touring all over she's found that black people like her better than British people, but that may be because of her ass rather than her jokes. Jahnavi was a guest performer at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has performed in Los Angeles, New York and London venues such as The Improv, Gotham, The Comedy Cafe, and your mom's house. Jahnavi believes that laughter is overrated in comedy. She also heavily believes in sarcasm and regularly has threesomes with it and irony. Sometimes her imaginary cat gets jealous. WEBSITE | | BOOK
