Kamal Pandya is a dashing queer trans guy in the tradition of a young Keshore Kumar (with a slightly less coiffed moustache) and an old Jabba the Hutt, (with a slightly less athletic build). His work draws from his life as a South Asian queer trans person, expelled from Uganda and now living on Algonquin territories.
He has performed at Yuk Yuk’s, Absolute Comedy, the Palais du Congress, The National Archives of Canada, NAC’s Fourth Stage, the Terry Fox Center, and pretty much any place willing to pay for services in buffet vouchers. You may recognize Kamal from the unfortunate pani-puri incident which precipitated his heart-breaking departure from “The Bachelorette.”
Kamal delightfully returns to the Indian Summer Festival as the host of 5×15.
