Nimesh Patel

Lounge Showroom

Nimesh Patel

Nimesh Patel is currently a writer on Saturday Night Live (where he is notably the first Indian American to have that job). He was born to Indian parents in New Jersey and went to the NYU Stern School of Business, graduating with a degree in Finance.

Before landing at SNL, Nimesh was a writer for the 2017 White House Correspondents' Dinner hosted by Hasan Minhaj; consulted for Broad City and TruTV's Comedy Knockout; in 2016 Nimesh was hired by Chris Rock to write for the 88th Annual Academy Awards (again, notably the first Indian American to write for the Oscars). He has opened on the road for comics such as Chris Rock, Maz Jobrani, and Michael Che.

Nimesh was also named one of Comedy Central’s “Comics to Watch” in 2013. He is a regular on MTV2's Vidiots and can be seen performing stand up around New York City at the Comedy Cellar, Caroline’s, Stand Up NY, UCB, and more.

Other Showtimes

This show is SOLD OUT!

Get up close with an exciting new talent in our lounge showroom. Nimesh is the first Indian-American to write for “Saturday Night Live,” and he’s also on Comedy Central’s radar. Already a fixture in New York’s stand-up scene, he’s bringing the good times to DC this February.


All sales are final. There are no refunds or exchanges.


Admission Policies

  • Patrons must be 18 or older to attend events or classes at the DC Improv. Any exceptions are clearly noted in the event descriptions on dcimprov.com.
  • There is a two-item minimum per customer. This can be any combination of food items or beverages. Bottled water and soft drinks count as items.

Seating Policies

  • For our main showroom, the first show of any night is the "early" show. All other shows are "late" shows. Early shows are seated by time of arrival. The earlier you arrive at the club, the greater your seating options will be. Late shows have assigned seating, and assignments are made in order of ticket purchase. The earlier you buy tickets, the better your seats will be (i.e. closer to the stage).
  • For our lounge, all shows regardless of start time are seated by time of arrival.
