Proudly representing brown women everywhere, Zarna Garg is a mom and lawyer turned award-winning screenwriter and stand-up comedian, highlighting the immigrant and American experience with her own signature style.
Zarna has recently taken TikTok by storm, with her latest comedy videos gaining more than 15 million views and counting!
Her debut romantic comedy screenplay “Rearranged” won the Best Comedy Screenplay Award at the 2019 Austin Film Festival (placing #1 out of 11,000 scripts), and was also a 2019 Academy Nicholl Fellowships Semi-Finalist. The script has been optioned by Marginal Mediaworks.
Since the pandemic, she’s also brought her comedy shows online, a move which was recently covered in the New York Times.
Zarna has performed for sold out audiences at top clubs across the country, and you can find her each month at the famous Caroline’s on Broadway with her hit show “My American Dream.”
She is one of a handful of female Indian comedians worldwide, and quite possibly the only one who publicly takes on her mother-in-law. Zarna is a rare voice tackling the type of humor few (if any) other Indian immigrant women have attempted before, and represents a demographic with few comedic influences.
Zarna is thrilled to get back on the stage with upcoming shows at Caroline’s on Broadway and at the New York Comedy Festival (which has been postponed due to the pandemic).
