Type Caste

About

Type Caste is a South Asian standup comedy group based out of the Bay Area. By meshing Indian and American cultures, our distinct perspectives hope to paint a broader picture of the Asian American experience. Our jokes cover topics ranging from cultural stereotypes to silly observations, making our act relatable to audiences of all backgrounds. We tour colleges and clubs across the country and have performed at festivals such as SF Sketchfest, Burbank Comedy Festival and Desi Comedy Fest. We hope to perform for you soon!

 
 
  • Richard Sarvate grew up in the Bay Area to parents of Indian immigrants. He spent 10 years working as a programmer before deciding to throw off the shackles of corporate life. Now he spends his nights on stage poking fun at his previous career. His jokes range from an impression of a GPS for insecure men to deep and introspective subjects like his mother's schizophrenia. He's a regular host at the San Francisco Punch Line, he's written live sketches with Don Novello, and he recently completed a 20 show tour of India.

  • Ryan Sudhakaran is half Indian and half Indian but all American. Growing up in the Bay Area, Ryan went through the ringer of high academic standards and strict parenting but came out a clown with a degree in Physics. Only ever using his degree to estimate the maximum distance he can stand from the toilet while peeing, he spends most of his time thinking about absurd situations involving exaggerated characters and elaborate premises. 
    Eclectic and irreverent, Ryan’s mind is a chaotic mix of scientific curiosity and immature thoughts. He does shows all around the Bay Area and has performed in SF Sketchfest and Desi Comedy Fest.

Sanj has performed at Rooster T Feathers, Standup NY, and several other clubs on both coasts.
