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.

Hi folks!

So one of our Doppelgangers, Nicole Byer, will be moving to LA in a month! This is fantastic news and we are extremely proud of her. We know she’s going to kick so much ass while she’s out there.

Since this change is happening for an undetermined amount of time, and since we are such a small group, Doppelganger will have to take a break from our regularly scheduled shows at UCB. We had an amazing run and we are so grateful for the opportunity to perform on a regular basis at our home theater. Thank you UCB, Anthony King and Nate Dern for giving us so many great opportunities. And thanks to all the people whoever watched a Doppelganger show. I know we always had a blast, and we hope you did as well.

Our last Doppelganger Gets Inked show is this Friday Sept 28th 7:30PM at UCB East. You can make reservations here:

We’re paired with Sandino: Unsolved Mysteries. We’re happy to be paired with this team because they mean a lot to us. We both formed around the same time in Spring of 2010, and according to Will Hines they were our improv doppelgangers (as far as energy, organics and passion).

This isn’t our last show ever, not even close. We have a few other shows in October before Nicole leaves. Check the Shows page on this site for more info on that. And we’ll perform together whenever we’re all in the same town.

Thanks again for all the support, and we’ll be seeing you :)

Love,

The Ladies of Doppelganger

Come to this show on Friday and buy Nicole lots of drinks and give her lots of kisses when she gets off stage!

This made me really, REALLY sad… Nicole leaving, Doppelganger not at the UCB for a regular run… I am going to go cry a little.  YOU go and make a reservation.  Don’t miss this!!
