The Business of Content with Simon Owens — This 45-year-old Indian comedian has 14 million views on TikTok 616 616 zarnagarg

In just about every article about TikTok, it’s portrayed as a video repository created by and for teens. Indeed, nearly every single one of its top-earning creators are under the age of 20, and polls have found that it ranks second only to Snapchat as U.S. teens’ favorite social media app.

Zarna Garg is an exception to the rule in multiple ways. For one, she’s a 45-year-old mom who barely even knew TikTok existed a year ago. And while most top users traffic in dance videos, lip syncs, and comedy sketches, Zarna’s specialty is standup comedy. Many of her jokes aim to capture the South Asian immigrant experience, and she says she’s carved out a niche explored by very few comedians, both inside the U.S. and in India.

I interviewed Zarna about how she cracked the TikTok algorithm, what impact her success has had on her comedy career, and how she’s leveraging that success to try to break into Hollywood.

That’s Total Mom Sense, Episode 51 — with Zarna Garg & Kanika Chadda Gupta 1024 512 chasej

During these uncertain times when fear and anxiety are just as pervasive as Coronavirus itself, it’s okay to give yourself permission to find joy in the little things and share a laugh with friends and family. As they say, laughter is the best medicine.

And in my humble opinion, we have a metaphorical doctor helping us – Zarna Garg. Yes there’s a double-meaning here because she’s South Asian. She’s a lawyer turned comedienne, mom of three, and I’m blessed to call her a dear friend.

Zarna and I met earlier this year and became fast friends. I was fortunate to work with her on her branding and website – zarnagarg.com. You’ll see a lot of shocking pink across the pages because A) it’s damn near shocking for a South Asian mom to make her mark in comedy and B) pink is overtly feminine and bold and stands out in an industry of men. Elle Woods approved. Yes that was a girly lawyer joke, which pretty much sums up my case in point.

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.
