About Zarna Garg

Zarna Garg is a mom and lawyer turned award-winning screenwriter and stand-up comedian, highlighting the immigrant and American experience with her own signature style.

She performs for sold-out audiences at top clubs across the country, and you can find her each month at the famous Caroline’s on Broadway with her second hit show Sari, Not Sorry. She’s taken TikTok by storm, with her comedy videos gaining more than sixty million views and counting!

Her debut romantic comedy screenplay Rearranged won the Best Comedy Screenplay Award at the 2019 Austin Film Festival and has been optioned by Marginal Mediaworks.

Zarna is one of a handful of female Indian comedians worldwide, and quite possibly the only one who publicly takes on her mother-in-law. A rare voice tackling the type of humor few (if any) other Indian immigrant women have attempted before, Zarna proudly represents brown women everywhere.

About the Harvard College Stand-Up Comic Society

Founded in 2007, the Harvard College Stand-Up Comic Society (“Harvard College SUCS”) has been entertaining audiences in Sanders Theatre, Queens Head Pub, the Science Center, Fong Auditorium, the Gotham Comedy Club, and one random Rotary Club ever since. During their time with the Society, members have been seen at Improv Boston, the Comedy Studio, the Laugh Factory, and Last Comic Standing, and alumni have gone on to appear on Late NightAmerica's Got TalentLast Comic Standing, the Boston Comedy Festival, and many other festivals and showcases. They've also been called a "ragtag band of misfits" by Cosmopolitan Magazine.
