Saurin Choksi mixes absurd characters and stories of his own personal tragedies while exploring topics from everyday life to the utterly ridiculous.
Based out of Chicago, this Lincoln Lodge cast member is a staple on the scene and performs regularly at Second City’s UP Comedy, Comedians You Should Know, The Comedy Bar and most of the city’s other top clubs and showcases. Choksi is also a favorite at clubs throughout the midwest including Comedy Club on Sate in Madison, WI and Joey’s in Livonia, MI. He’s had the pleasure of working with such fantastic comedians as Dana Gould, Pete Holmes, Ian Edwards, Kyle Kinane, and Chad Daniels among others.
A one time understudy to the Second City Detroit Mainstage, he is also a graduate of that theatre’s conservatory program and has trained at all the major improv schools in Chicago from iO to The Annoyance. Last year Choksi was invited to perform at the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival. He is a member of the improv/sketch groups Ghost Man and Tim & Choksi. He also raps with sunglasses on as half the music comedy duo Chox N Brizz.
Choksi loves listening to 90s rap on his laptop, discovering new conspiracy theories, Game of Thrones, and monkeys. Also, he’s real affable.
