      Meet the “Funny Brown Mom”

      Zarna Garg is one of a kind.

      She’s an Indian immigrant, mom, and lawyer turned award-winning screenwriter and stand-up comedian who proudly represents brown women everywhere, and whose TikTok videos have been watched 15 million times in her first few months on the platform.

      Her debut romantic comedy screenplay “Rearranged” won the Best Comedy Screenplay Award at the 2019 Austin Film Festival (placing #1 out of nearly 12,000 scripts), and was also a 2019 Academy Nicholl Fellowships Semi-Finalist. The script is currently in development with Marginal Mediaworks.

      Zarna connects on relatable topics like marriage, kids, and mother-in-laws, while bringing a refreshing, and often overlooked, perspective —she’s observational with a bindi.

      With few comedic influences leading the way, Zarna comes from a culture that discourages the idea of a woman’s independent voice, let alone one that makes jokes. Seizing the opportunity, Zarna has stepped center stage determined to show the women around the world that look like her that they can laugh too.

      Zarna has performed for sold out audiences at top clubs across the country.

      Unwilling to let the pandemic stop her, Zarna has kept audiences laughing with online comedy shows (profiled in the New York Times), IGTV appearances, interviews with the cast of Netflix’s summer smash “Indian Matchmaking” (recently covered by Screen Rant), and even impromptu sets outside major landmarks across New York City.

      About the “Funny Brown Mom”

      Zarna Garg is an award-winning screenwriter and stand-up comedian, and headlines a monthly show at Caroline’s on Broadway called “My American Dream.” Zarna has produced and performed in multiple sold-out comedy shows in top comedy clubs across NYC including the groundbreaking HinJews shows. She has expanded into online comedy shows across multiple time zones, a move which was recently covered in the New York Times and Rukus Avenue Radio.

      Her debut romantic comedy screenplay ‘Rearranged’ won the Best Comedy Screenplay Award (placing #1 out of 11,000 scripts) at the Austin Film Festival, and was also a 2019 Academy Nicholl Fellowships Semi-Finalist. The script has been optioned by Marginal Mediaworks.

      She has received numerous community accolades for pioneering one-of-a-kind works as an Indian mom of three and former lawyer turned comedian whose comedy uniquely combines the immigrant and American experience. She is one of a handful of female Indian comedians worldwide, and possibly the only one who publicly takes on her mother-in-law.

      She is currently providing comedy shows to first responders and their patients, as well as interviewing them on her Instagram Live to find out whether they are single.
