AAAFF 2019: American Hasi

After losing his day job, comedian Tushar Singh decides to pursue stand-up comedy full-time. Growing up as the only Indian American in his elementary school in Alabama, Singh draws upon his personal life in his stand-up material, finding humor in the conflicts and awkwardness between private and public life. In an attempt to accelerate his comedy career and take advantage of his unique comedic perspective, Singh maps out a 35-day comedy tour in India, taking part in Indias flourishing stand-up scene. Director Laura Asherman (MARAMASO) follows Singhs journey from the US to India as he discovers the advantages and challenges of making audiences laugh through his self-deprecating, occasionally taboo humor. Along for the journey is Singhs mother, supporting his comedic endeavors while connecting him to his familys past as they tour India. Throughout the film, Singh also has the opportunity to interview influential comedians Russell Peters, Bill Burr, and Vir Das. Balancing humor with the struggle for success and self-discovery, AMERICAN HASI is a funny yet emotional portrait of a comedian at the crossroads of his life and career. Daniel Mauro
