Sriya Sarkar

Digital Media-ite, Comedian, Filmmaker

Sriya Sarkar can be found at the intersection of comedy, political issues, and digital media (just off of I-95). A filmmaker and comedian, she recently received her Master's in Integrated Digital Media from NYU's Polytechnic School of Engineering.

The smorgasbord of her work lives here.

A smattering of comedy dabblings - ranging from standup to sketch to improv. Enjoy and judge for your own amusement.

STAND-UP

Highlights from "Speakout Laughout": an abortion speakout doubling as a standup comedy show where comedians and storytellers shared their personal abortion stories. Laughs were had. Stigmas were crushed. Check out the full playlist here.

I also programmed the funkadelic projection in the background which had flashing uteri icons pop up for each event related tweet in real time. The projection is affectionately called, "Trippy Uteri."

Thanks to our sponsors, the 1 in 3 Campaign (a project of Advocates For Youth)!

Created for the Interaction Design Studio class, part of the Integrated Digital Media graduate program at NYU Poly School of Engineering.

A standup performance about, what else, stretch marks.
