-The Huffington Post.
Negin Farsad is an American stand?up comedian, actor, writer and filmmaker of Iranian descent based in New York City. She believes to can change the world through jokes. Like most comedians, she has a Masters Degree in African?American Studies.
She was named one 10 Feminist Comedians to Watch by Paper Magazine, and was selected as a TED Fellow for her work in social justice comedy. She has written for/appeared on Comedy Central, MTV, PBS, IFC, Nickelodeon and others.
She is author of book How to Make White People Laugh, where Farsad shares her personal experiences growing up as the “Other” in an American culture that has no time for nuance. In fact, she longed to be black and/or Mexican at various points of her youth, and she asks the important questions like, what does it mean to have a hyphenated identity? How can we actually combat racism, stereotyping, and exclusion? Do Iranians get bunions at a higher rate than other ethnic groups (she’s asking for a friend)?
Negin is director/producer of the feature films Nerdcore Rising, starring Weird Al Yankovic, and The Muslims Are Coming! starring Jon Stewart, David Cross and Lewis Black (both available on Netflix). Her next film 3rd Street Blackout, starring Janeane Garofalo and Ed Weeks, will be released in 2016.
