Saurin Choksi does comedy and makes good things in New York City.

A member of the Writers Guild of America, Saurin recently wrote on staff for the Facebook / Refinery 29 talk show, “After After Party.” He’s also worked with the good people at Comedy Central Digital on a number of their video sketches. Saurin is a 10+ year stand up comedy veteran. In 2014 he won The Boston Comedy Festival. His stand up has been featured on Laughs on Fox TV and Sirius/XM radio. He has performed at numerous comedy festivals--Limestone, Bridgetown, and SF Sketch are among his favorites. Saurin also hosted a television show on Fuse called "White Guy Talk Show" where he talked about pop culture and wore suits he couldn't afford. He also created internet videos for and is a proud alumni of Chicago's Lincoln Lodge. Saurin produces and hosts two acclaimed live stand up showcases in Brooklyn: Comedians You Should Know NYC and Brown Privilege Comedy.

Saurin relaxes by sewing, crafting, and making stuff. He loves his wife, his family, and 4 of his friends. He thinks you should be nice to yourself and is impressed by your power.
