Born in 1984 in Portland, Oregon to stereotypical Indian parents, Kabir Singh realized early on that it wouldn’t be easy making friends. Luckily for Kabir, he soon became known as the funniest Indian kid in Oregon — not too difficult considering he was the only Indian kid in Oregon. When he was nine, his family moved to India, where he was bullied and teased for being American. This taught him how to make people laugh in no less than three languages. At 13, Kabir returned to the US to continue his education, graduating from San Jose State. Kabir cleverly shares his life experiences and culture clashes of being both an Indian in America and an American in India. Kabir was featured on Comedy Central’s Gabriel Iglesias Presents: Stand Up Revolution, voiced a character in the most recent season of Fox’s Family Guy, and will be starring in an upcoming MTV show.
[NOV 2016] “I just wanted to pass along a huge appreciation to not only your team but Kabir as well. His performance was a hit on Friday and I was very pleased with how professional Kabir was not only a comedian but also as an individual. . . After the show he was so willing to talk with students and take whatever photos were being asked of him. He was very polite and was very open to the idea of taking a team picture with myself and my committee. Overall, Kabir’s performance and his presence at JMU was a highlight not only to my team but to the JMU student body as well. I just wanted to make sure that you as well as Kabir knew just how much this past event meant to us.” – Grant Summers, Spirit & Traditions Director, James Madison University
