Empathy On Sale: Stepping out our bubbles can be hard. Nationally Touring Comedian, Krish Mohan is exploring bubble culture and the current divide in today’s political climate. He uses his sharp wit, storytelling and comedy to illustrate how capitalism, identity politics, immigration and misunderstanding progressive ideals has led to unnecessarily splitting us apart. He explores Native American culture, reforming education and western culture’s obsession with extremism, war and violence – all of which pushes us further into our bubbles – using satire and comedy to engage dialogue about hot button issues. Find out if he can figure out how we can get out of our bubbles! This show won the “Audience Choice” Award at the 2018 Pittsburgh Fringe Festival!

Comedys not always supposed to be comfortable, and Mohan warns at the top that hes going to get weird and esoteric. He keeps his promise, but fortunately also keeps you laughing
