Desi Comedy Fest is the largest annual South Asian comedy festival in America featuring the funniest South Asian comedians from around the globe.

Now in its 4th year, the 2017 edition presents 40 comedians of Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi and Sri Lankan descent. We also have comedians from various minority groups and the LGBTQ community. The comedians are raw, hilarious and some of the best in the business. The comedians this year come from all over USA, Canada, South Africa and India, and have been on Comedy Central, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Conan and The Late show on Letterman.

Day 11 of 11 will be the Grand Finale of the Festival at the historic Marine's Memorial Theater in Downtown San Francisco.

This historic San Francisco venue was built in 1926 to bring the best national, international and local Music, Dance, Author Talks and Lectures and theatrical/film presentations to Bay Area audiences.
