Neha is a comedian, actor, writer, producer, a Chartered Professional Accountant as well as a cilantro aficionado.
Her parents are immigrants from India, so naturally, Neha had to become an accountant or she would bring shame upon her parents, her parents’ parents, her parents’ parents’ parents, and well, I think you get the picture. She hated it! So in 2017, she quit her job as an accountant to pursue her dreams of…well, not being an accountant (read: comedian, writer, actor, producer).
Neha is a graduate of The Second City’s Conservatory Program as well as recipient of the 2018 NBC Diversity Fellowship, which is awarded to the 15 best up and coming comedians in Toronto by The Second City. Neha co-wrote and starred in the Luminari ad I Am A CPA (Rant) (that went viral…with accountants).
She was part of the cast of the critically acclaimed 2019 Toronto Fringe Show called Woke ‘N Broke. You may have seen her in commercials for McDonalds, Trident, OLG Lottery, Rec Room, BMO or Twizzlers. Or you can catch her on the TV shows Meme This and Moonshine Diaries premiering later this year on Tamil Entertainment Television Network. Or you can watch her hosting Shopify’s NEW MONEY series on YouTube.
You may have seen her producing and hosting OTHER (Second City) or assistant producing Yas Kween (Bad Dog) or performing in comedy improv troupes The Kweendom and She’s All That. Or maybe you saw her crying in public during the summer of 2005 when Dumbledore died. You can follow her on Instagram @nehakohli__
