“Mohan’s material is frequently clever if not uproariously funny” Roger Caitlin of the Washington
“an honest, funny approach to describe how his expectations of moving to America didn’t 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)

while they’re delivering the message, then go see the Indian Comedian, unless of course…
you’re racist.” -Randy Clark from IndyFringe Talks
“he is a thinking man’s comedian and an astute one at that.” -Tom Alvarez of the Examiner
“a playful, provocative stand-up routine” -The DCist
“‘touchy’ subjects are addressed with a personal approach from lifelong experience” -Ben

including drug reform, prison for profit, climate change, mental illness and human accountability.”

“a witty and accurate observation about modern day cultures.” Nick Holstein, West Virginia
