Meet Samson Koletkar, A One of a Kind Comedian
Samson Koletkar (AKA Mahatma Moses) is the world’s only Indian Jewish Stand Up Comedian.
Samson was born in Mumbai and raised Jewish. Growing up in the world’s most crowded city, this acerbic and original comic spent most of his childhood years burning the midnight oil to earn a Masters in Computer Software, thereby fulfilling his parent’s dreams. He then moved half-way across the world, to the technology headquarters and a hotbed for emerging comics, San Francisco.
As a first generation immigrant in America, Samson brings a refreshingly new approach to witty, thought-provoking, clean humor with a global perspective. Driven by personal trials and tribulations,his subtle satire addresses religious and political hypocrisies, social issues, and day-to-day absurdities of human nature.
Samson has performed at clubs, colleges and corporations in India, Canada and 18 states in U.S. & has been featured on Asian Jewish Life, Indian Express, NBC Bay Area, CBS and NPR.
In February, Desi Comedy Fest’s core team of Abhay Nadkarni, Richard Sarvate & Samson Koletkar will be touring India doing shows in Bombay, Bangalore, Delhi & Pune. 12 shows confirmed so far, more in the works.
