Richard Sarvate is a San Francisco based comedian with an alternative sense of humor. He is Indian, though his last name was butchered during an immigration debacle. He is a programmer by day and also a programmer by night. But he also finds time to talk about weird stuff on stages. His act consists of quirky observations, impressions, and surreal one-man sketches. He may be described as a “comic’s comic”. His jokes range from silly imaginings about a taqueria that serves fortune churros, to deep and introspective subjects like his mother’s schizophrenia. He has performed in the prestigious San Francisco Sketchfest Festival, opened for Roseanne Barr, and recently completed a nineteen show tour of India.
