So the name Kunal Nayyar may not be familiar to you, but maybe the name Dr. Rajesh Koothrappali is? Known famously for his portrayal of the an astrophysicist on The Big Bang Theory, Kunal plays Raj with so much Indian charm, it's almost impossible not to relate to him. Kunal is in town with Simon Helburg to MC the Just for Laughs A Tribute to Nerds event on July 29th.
Comprised of comedians Brian Posehn, Mark Little, Chris Hardwick and Sammy J & Randy, the evening should be fun for the hardcore nerds and the slightly nerdy alike.
I was fortunate enough to get the chance to interivew Kunal. You can listen to the interview below.
