On Wednesday, April 1o, USPB presented doctor and breakout comedian Priyanka Wali. This was USPB’s last comedy event of the school year.
Wali, from San Francisco, has been featured on The Today Show, Cosmopolitan and Healthline, among others. She was also named by Refinery29 as one of the “50 Female Stand-Up Comedians You Need to Know.” And if that’s not enough, she’s also the only American Indian female comedian who practices Internal Medicine.
After her show on Wednesday, however, she makes a strong case that laughter may very well be the best medicine.
“This performance was definitely a highlight of my week. I had so many exams and papers, but it was refreshing to laugh nonstop for an hour,” Maveli Espitia ’20 said.
Her stand-up focuses on life as a woman, an Indian-American, the child of immigrant parents, and a scientist in America.
