The Mission Position is a popular independent comedy showcase, hosted by five of San Francisco’s most accomplished comedians – Matt Lieb, Kate Willett, Jessica Sele, Torio Van Grol & Adrian McNair. Every Thursday, audiences fill Lost Weekend Video’s famous CineCave comedy den, for a show that provides club-level talent without irritating drink minimums or filler comics. The Mission Position welcomes a new lineup of special guests every week that include the Bay Area’s brightest comics alongside nationally touring headliners from NBC, TBS, E! and Comedy Central.

Abhay moved from South-India to South Central Los Angeles for grad school. “But Why?” would be an obvious reaction. Maybe he had a death wish or maybe he wanted to see if Training Day was legit or maybe USC was the only school willing to give him an education. Dodging bullets en-route to grad school armed him with plenty of stories and stand up was his only catharsis for combating culture shock. His act is an eclectic mix of his experience as an immigrant in the US. He recently performed at the Ventura and SAC Comedy Festivals 2014. He was also featured in the best of the fest showcase at the Burbank Comedy Festival-2014. in 2015 he was selected to be a part of SF Sketchfest Comedy Festival and the San Diego Comedy Festival.
