Krystyna is half of the comedy duo, Sorry About Last Night, with fellow stand-up, Corinne Fisher. Together, they have produced several popular stand-up shows in New York City, written and starred in a two woman self-titled show at The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, created the vlog series Girls on GIRLS and currently host one of iTune's top podcasts, Guys We Fucked: The Anti-Slut Shaming Podcast, which has been praised in publications such as The Daily Beast, The Huffington Post, Shape Magazine, The Daily Dot, and many more.
Her artistic journey took off in Washington D.C. (it's all about the Washingtons), but she now resides in the biggest apple in the gosh darn world. Aparna's sense of humor tends toward the dry, observational variety, but do be warned, her act runs rampant with absurdism and unregulated whimsy. Other credits include writer and performer on TOTALLY BIASED WITH W. KAMAU BELL and appearances on CONAN on TBS, MELTDOWN WITH JONAH AND KUMAIL, @MIDNIGHT, and ADAM DEVINE'S HOUSE PARTY on COMEDY CENTRAL, NBC's LAST COMIC STANDING, SEESO's NIGHT TRAIN WITH WYATT CENAC and ROOFTOP COMEDY'S LIVE FROM THE BARREL HOUSE, VH1'S I LOVE THE 2000S, TRUTV'S HOW TO BE A GROWN UP and FRIENDS OF THE PEOPLE, and FUSE'S WHITE GUY TALK SHOW. She has also done videos for ABOVE AVERAGE, REFINERY29, FUNNY OR DIE, SLATE V, and MTV OTHER.
In addition to being a 2013 New Face at the prestigious JUST FOR LAUGHS COMEDY FESTIVAL in Montreal, she has also been on numerous lists such as VULTURE'S "50 COMEDIANS YOU SHOULD KNOW IN 2015", MARIE CLAIRE'S FUNNIEST WOMEN OF 2015, TIME MAGAZINE'S 140 TOP TWEETERS OF 2014, JEZEBEL'S COMEDY QUEENS OF 2014, TIME OUT NY'S "10 FUNNIEST WOMEN IN NEW YORK", FLAVORPILL'S "11 ESSENTIAL YOUNG COMEDIANS IN NEW YORK CITY", LA WEEKLY'S "12 COMEDY ACTS TO WATCH", SERIAL OPTIMIST'S "10 COMICS YOU MUST KNOW", and SPLITSIDER'S "10 UP-AND-COMING COMEDIANS ON EACH COAST". She has also been featured in LAUGHSPIN, BUST MAGAZINE, COSMOPOLITAN, ELLE INDIA, READER'S DIGEST, THE HUFFINGTON POST, and THE WASHINGTON POST MAGAZINE.
You may have heard Aparna on the WTF PODCAST WITH MARC MARON, the NERDIST PODCAST WITH CHRIS HARDWICK, NPR'S "WAIT, WAIT…DON'T TELL ME!", RADIO Q on CBC, or seen her at countless festivals such as the MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL COMEDY FESTIVAL IN AUSTRALIA, SXSW, SF SKETCHFEST, OUTSIDELANDS, the BRIDGETOWN COMEDY FESTIVAL, and the GREAT AMERICAN COMEDY FESTIVAL. Comics Aparna has been humbly delighted to open for include John Oliver, Tig Notaro, Paul F. Tompkins, Eugene Mirman, Maria Bamford, Kurt Braunohler & Kristen Schaal, Dave Attell, Rob Delaney, Christian Finnegan, Tom Green, Eddie Brill, Hari Kondabolu, Myq Kaplan, and Chris D'Elia.
In 2013, Tig was nominated for a Grammy Award for her standup
release, LIVE, which sold over 100,000 units in jus t six weeks. L IVE is a standup set delivered just days after Tig was diagnosed with invasive bilateral breast cancer. Tig has since announced her cancer to be in remission, and remains a favorite on Conan and This American Life. In her time off, Tig enjoys bird watching with her wife Stephanie, their twin sons, and cat Fluff, at home in Los Angeles.
