Nimesh Patel is a comedian and Emmy-nominated writer who has risen the ranks to some of comedy’s biggest stages due to his unassailable joke writing, prolific output and pioneering use of technology. In the past two years, Nimesh has self-released three stand-up specials and has charted a path from sold-out comedy clubs to major theaters.

Nimesh most recently appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and before that made his late night debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers. His self-released specials Jokes To Get You Through Quarantine, Thank You, China, and Lucky Lefty have amassed millions of views.

His first writing job came after Chris Rock saw him perform standup and hired him directly to write for The Academy Awards in 2016 and tour with him. Since then, he has written for Saturday Night Live, A Little Late with Lilly Singh, and The White House Correspondents Dinner and was a producer for Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.
