Poupak's Parisian Life in New York

I am a French-Iranian woman with a passion for comedy. I have been lucky enough to be performing all over New York since 2010. I was a TV producer and a head writer for a morning live news show in France, as well as a free lance journalist and a book editor for many years.

Now, I am a life and a career coach (member of ICF), an improviser, a writer, and a show producer. I love my life!

I am a performer at the UCB & sometimes produce shows at The PIT in New York.

I contribute to BuzzFeed.

I fight cancer with a passion - I want to contribute to a world where cancer will be as benign as a simple cold. Where you can donate against cancer of any kind and give hope to families and patients

Ugh, I obviously need to watch this show.

Same here. 



You listen to me. While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I am a naysayer and hatchet man in the fight against violence.

Usually when I say something, I was trying to say this.

This speech is so surprising and weird and cool.

So interesting and fun and bewildering. 



Please take a look at this trailer for Sepideh, a documentary which follows the life of a young girl in Iran who dreams of becoming an astronaut.

Happy Malala Day, Smart Girls!

YES to Iranian women who have dreams and who WILL make them happen.

It is illegal for women to go topless in most cities, yet you can buy a magazine of a woman without her top on at any 7-11 store. So, you can sell breasts, but you cannot wear breasts, in America.

This is one of my favorite quotes about sexualization/objectification vs autonomy of female bodies bc it’s so succinct

Start ignoring people who threaten your joy.
Literally, ignore them.
Say nothing.
Don’t invite any parts of them into your space.

They just DO NOT exist.

Poupak! Isn't that tutorial neat?? I was looking up ways to do makeup for my weird portraits and came across that. I'm terrible with makeup, but I could even follow her directions pretty well!
