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

Julia’s show is incredible. At the risk of offending some people (OK, it’s 2 am, and I’m a li’le toast), I think this show is one of the best I’ve seen at the UCB (With Pam Murphy’s The C Word).  I like comedy that makes you feel and this show definitely does that. If you don’t see it, you’ll miss out.
