BIO

Mahesh Kotagi is originally from Texas but he has no Texan accent. That is important, very important.

Since moving to NYC he has become a rising star in the comedy scene. He made his television stand up comedy debut this year on six episodes of season 3 of Laughs on Fox. He also appeared in his first national commercial for MTV Snapchat.

This year he is part of the Burbank Comedy Festival. And previously he has been featured on the 2016 Carolines on Broadway Comedy Madness, The Crossroads Comedy Festival in 2015, and Make Me Laugh Albany 2014.

He produces and hosts Inside Jokes and co-produces the All Brown Comedy Throwdown. In addition to comedy he is a writer, producer, and an all around nice guy. Oh and he rescues puppies daily. Although he did write this... so take that last bit with a grain of salt.
