Tickets and more information are available online at www.dsicomedy.com.
Krish Mohan explores the idea of happiness and perceptions of mental illness in today's society. In this hilarious evening, he removes the stigmas associated with immigration, drugs, gun control, racism and being accountable for the problems we've created -- all revolving around the subject of mental health. He has toured across the United States and has opened various nationally touring headliners including Lee Camp, Stewart Huff & Cameron Esposito. Audiences have called Krish's show "brilliant", "hilarious" and "refreshing" as he "skewers mainstream American ignorance: a nation of foreigners doesn't seem to know what to make of them." Will he find out how we can all approach happiness?!
