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

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

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!

Something to think about as you watch today’s World Cup final.

A li’le entertainment for your half time with jamescoker & Kate Riley.


This is the BEST, most historically-accurate 1920s makeup tutorial I’ve ever found. Thanks for making this, I will be utilizing this often.

Just want to watch this because Alice recommended it and I loooooove the 20s.



Another quick n’ dirty impression. This is me as Nick Offerman talking about his family life. Enjoy.

Frank is da best

frankhejl is SO FUNNY (also, he is one of the kindest people in the comedy community, jus’sayin’).
