CONAN IS HAPPEN! ALBUM IS OUT! TOUR IS START!

Everything is happening! What a week!

First off, I was on Conan two nights ago. It was my second time on the show and it continues to be a magical place where literal giants come over and shake my hand.

Here is that.

My album is also out. It’s now available on iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, Spotify, and hard copy. And was in fact #1 on the iTunes Comedy Charts on release day, HOORAY! You can buy here. And my mini-tour has kicked off (tickets/schedule also available here).

I am currently at the magical haven known as the Comedy Attic in Bloomington, Indiana where my album’s label, Secretly Canadian, is based. But dates continue through the rest of the month!

And hey, if I missed your city, drop me a line, as I’ll be adding stops later this year for my West Coast, Midwest, and other geographically assorted friends.

Also, deep thanks to everyone for all the kind words and encouragement; it means a lot to my gumball heart. I feel very lucky, and it also feels somewhat surreal, during an otherwise grim time in the world. In that vein, let’s try and listen to each other and not be so quick to divide ourselves. It’s easier to put up walls than to be generous, and mutual kindness ultimately benefits us all.

Lots of smart handshakes & baby wipes,

Aparna

July Album Release Tour! Plus Variety!

HEY HUMON FRANDZ!

I have an album release tour coming up this July! My debut album, “Just Putting It Out There” under Tig Notaro’s new imprint, Bentzen Ball Records under Secretly Canadian, drops July 8th. And I will be zipping through the Midwest, South, and up the East Coast to spread word of it.

Please come on through if you are in or near any of these cities (ticket links below)! I would love to meet your delicious face.

Also, cool news for listheads! I was recently named one of Variety‘s Top Ten Comics to Watch for 2016. What this mainly means is a) Hollywood has winked at me and b) I get free license to wear two pairs of sunglasses indoors, outdoors, asleep, or awake for the rest of the year. Finally!

Womanhood Is Here!

That’s right, esteemed comedy visionary Jo Firestone and I are thrilled to whisper-scream that we have a new web series out under Refinery29’s new female-driven comedy channel, RIOT.

Here is Episode 1: PUBERTY! watch, learn, subscribe, love, laugh, eat, pray, breathe, dance, sit, swim!

Listen Up, Cuties!

Hey hey,

Here are some magical puddles I’ve gotten into as of late!

1) I have a mini-podcast on depression out with my friend/bosom buddy Jacqueline Novak. It’s available via Howl. I believe there’s a free trial offer with code word BLUE. It’s called BLUE WOMAN GROUP. I’m proud of its yammer. Our brilliant producer is Steven Valentino and helpful guide is Gretta Cohn at Midroll Media. It got a great little write up in The Daily Beast, read all about it.

2) A sketch I wrote and worked on with the brilliant Seth Reiss came out on Late Night yestereve. Czech it out here!

Onward, ya goobies! Lots of shows coming up in NY and beyond. Come on thru!

XOXO,
Gossiparna
