This past Sunday, I had a fantastic interview with Ahmed Bharoocha. He was generous enough to have Marlina (my girlfriend) over his house on a Sunday evening even though his little baby was sleeping. Ahmed is a stand up comic featured on Conan O’Brian and Comedy Central (30 minute special), was featured in Montreal’s Just for Laugh’s, has a viral sketch comedy channel called Dead Kevin, and is on Adult Swim’s Dream Corp LLC. In this conversation we cover a variety very interesting topics including:
- Starting in a small comedy scene and moving to LA
- Differences between smaller and larger scenes
- Leveraging existing material in a new scene
- Building a ‘tight 5’ for a Late Night Set
- Being a part of a popular weekly sketch channel
I learned a lot and I hope you guys do as well!
