I hate when people ask, ‘What’s it like being an Indian comedian?’ Or similarly, when they ask female comedians what it’s like being a ‘female comedian.’ I’ve never read anyone ask Jerry Seinfeld what it’s like being a ‘Caucasian comedian,’ which is actually a great question. Mindy Kaling put it best when she said something to the effect of, ‘I can go head-to-head with any white, male comedy writer. Don’t try to segment me into a smaller category.’ I thought it was such a badass thing to say and articulated my frustration perfectly.
