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

Yes, and I want to kill myself.

The Peoples Improv Theater has no knowledge of, or affiliation with, this show, nor have we received any pitches bearing this description.

To whomever posted this in its original format, call or email me at keith@thepit-nyc.com (212-563-7488).

Looks like a prank to me…
