Pinky Patel is a fresh new comedian who got her start on TikTok making millions of people laugh. Originally from Illinois, when Pinky is not busy giving out free hits of serotonin you can find her being an everyday PTA mom to her 2 young roommates and trying to find new and inventive ways to evict all of the extra 8 legged roommates she keeps acquiring in her glam cave.
Favorite response to a heckler or troll?
It was more of “audience participation” and I told her to not steal my thunder.
What were you like as a teen?
I was funny with good friends and family. If I didn’t know you (or like you) then I was quiet and reserved. I was more of a watcher.
On your deathbed, what transcendent advice would you croak at a young comedian?
Ignore the noise and listen to what matters: your gut.
When you were coming up in comedy, what helped you stick with it?
Best comedy advice you ever got?
Trust your gut. “What do I want to do?”
How has being funny helped you in your offstage life, either recently or when you were younger?
I use dark humor and jokes as a coping mechanism during mentally, physically, and emotionally stressful times.
Was there one person who inspired you to go into comedy? If so: Who, why, how?
Not single but multiple. Jerry Seinfeld, Margaret Cho, Ali Wong.
What single word always cracks you up?
