Comedy Show Benefiting Sapna NYC
What’s better than laughing for a cause? This past June, Board member, Anish Mitra, with Surprise Show partner Sachin Bansal, put together a comedy show benefiting Sapna NYC. The intimate show, taking place at Hotel Chantelle on the Lower East Side, brought together a diverse group of comedians, highlighting South Asian and women comics. The talented group of women comedians included: Zubi Ahmed of Kutti Gang, Leah Bonnema, Dina Hashem, Sheba Mason, and Amamah Sardar. The crowd also got to enjoy surprise guests Jim Gaffigan (The Jim Gaffigan Show, Mr. Universe, Obsessed, and Cinco) and Dan Soder (Billions, Guy Code). The evening closed out with a beautiful performance by ChaneseElifé, a Harlem-based singer and musician (Listen Here). Sapna staff, along with editors from Brown Girl Magazine, other social justice advocates, and supporters spent the evening laughing together to support the South Asian immigrant women that Sapna NYC serves.
