Type Caste is a South Asian standup comedy group. By meshing Indian and American cultures, our distinct perspectives hope to paint a broader picture of the Asian American experience. While our jokes cover topics ranging from cultural stereotypes to silly observations, a message of social consciousness underlies our humor. We hope our comedy not only makes audiences laugh, but makes them think as well.
Ryan Sudhakaran is half Indian and half Indian but all American. Growing up in the Bay Area, Ryan went through the ringer of high academic standards and strict parenting but came out a clown with a degree in Physics. Only ever using his degree to estimate the maximum distance he can stand from the toilet while peeing, he spends most of his time thinking about absurd situations involving exaggerated characters and elaborate premises. Eclectic and irreverent, Ryan’s mind is a chaotic mix of scientific curiosity and immature thoughts.
Originally from the Bay Area, Sanj started standup comedy fresh out of high school to escape the humdrum of UC college life.

Although he recently moved to the Big Apple with starry-eyed dreams of standup success, Sanj still has a special place in his heart for California and he regularly returns to perform at clubs and colleges across the state.
