Kalyani Pandya

The Minister of Wit 

Kalyani Pandya is a comedian and a writer fulfills her wildest dreams as well as her Mummy’s worst nightmares, by telling stories on any stage. She has performed at Yuk Yuk’s, Absolute Comedy, The National Arts Center Fourth Stage, The Terry Fox Center, The Palais du Congress, and essentially any place that has a buffet. Aamer Rahman was lucky enough to have her as his opener at Babylon, and Ottawa Xtra! calls her “Ottawa’s funniest dyke”. She is also The Canadian Center for Gender and Sexuality Studies Role Model Award winner in 2016, an honour that means even more to her, than her previous Ms India Canada Crown, which she scandalously lost after appearing as one of Kalinda Sharma’s lovers on “The Good Wife.” She is thrilled to return to Summer Fest this year.
