Ms. Vijai Nathan is a comedian, storyteller, writer and trainer - entertaining people across America and internationally too. Vijai's stories have been featured on NPR’s “Snap Judgment” and "Invisibila Live.” She's also a contributing writer for The Washington Post Magazine’s Date Lab.

Vijai grew up as a "foreigner" (or at least that's what everyone called her) in the suburbs of Washington DC where she was born. Her material comes from her experience as an Indian girl in America - raising two immigrant parents, dating boys with mothers who wished their sons could find a nice blond girl named "Tiffany," and the universal quest for love, understanding and a good pair of undies.

Vijai has the honor of being one of the few South Asian artists to be invited to perform at the Kennedy Center, Smithsonian, Library of Congress and Constitution Hall in Washington D.C. She is also the writer and performer of one-woman shows such as, "Good Girls Don't, But Indian Girls Do," and "McGoddess: Big Macs, Karma, & the American Dream.” Visit
