Bio

Kumail Nanjiani is a Pakistani-born American stand-up comic and actor best known for his starring role as Pindar Singh, an agoraphobic science fiction nerd working for the main characters of the show, in the comedy-drama television series Franklin & Bash, from 2011-2013.

Nanjiani is a tireless, New York-based writer and performer who first gained attention for his critically acclaimed, one-man University of California at Berkley show Unpronounceable.

The show was a hilarious account of growing up in a highly religious community in Pakistan and making his way to glamorous Iowa for engineering college before exploring standup in Chicago and New York.

Nanjiani has appeared on Saturday Night Live, The Colbert Report, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Late Show with David Letterman. He won two ECNYs for best standup and one-man show and was featured in both New York magazine's "10 comedians to watch" and Variety's "10 comics to watch."

In 2010, Nanjiani wrote a pilot loosely based on his life for NBC and Conaco, and he wrote and performed on Michael and Michael Have Issues for Comedy Central.

Nanjiani can also be seen in Greg Berlanti's Life as We Know It for Warner Bros.
