Samson Koletkar

Samson Koletkar was born in Mumbai and raised Jewish. Growing up in the world's most crowded city, he spent most of his childhood years burning the midnight candles for earning a Masters in Computer Software, thereby fulfilling his parent's dreams. He then moved half–way across the world, to the technology headquarters and a hotbed for emerging comics – San Francisco.

As a first generation immigrant in America, Samson brings a refreshingly new approach to cerebral, witty, thought–provoking, clean humor with a global perspective. Driven by personal trials and tribulations, his subtle satire addresses religious and political hypocrisies, social issues, and day–to–day absurdities of human nature.

He won the 2010 Asian American Theater Company Comedy Competition, has performed at clubs, colleges and corporations in India, Canada and 12 states in U.S. &has been featured on Asian Jewish Life, Indian Express, NBC, CBS and NPR.
