Hello! My name is Ajai, pronounced "UH-Jay." Like one J. It means "invincible," and to this day, I have never been vinced. Or if I have, I don't know it. 

I'm a standup comedian based in New York City. If you'll glance ever so slightly to the left, you can see a one-inch version of me in action.

I grew up in Plano, Texas, the son of Indian immigrants, the first Raj born on American soil. (I'd have been the first Varadarajan, if my dad hadn't seen fit to shorten the name to accommodate American ears.) I moved to New York to become a journalist, but my love of acting and performing guided me towards improvisational comedy, and from there I was drawn to standup, and now here we are on this website.

Please sign up for my mailing list if you want to keep up with my journey and my thoughts, such as it is, such as they are. Which is to say, entertaining if nothing else. Check the shows page for updates about upcoming shows. (That's a no-brainer there.) To get in touch, drop me a line: ajairaj at gmail dot com. Good night, and godspeed.
