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

More photos from the OUSU Women’s “I Need Feminism Because…” campaign in Oxford.

I need feminism because we live in a rape culture, and this needs to change.

I need feminism because as a female comedian, I still feel like I need to prove that DESPITE being a woman, I AM funny.

I need feminism because we need verbal and physical violence against women and their bodies to stop.

I need feminism….

I know this has been going around since last night, but reblogging so I can have it, and keep it and watch it. I love Amy. She’s the reason why I am doing comedy today.

She is showing what this is all about - true support, and women having each others’ backs because it’s a tough world out there for our gender and there are still people who say that women are not funny enough to be given a chance. 

Let’s do this girls! Let’s have each others’ backs!


Here is the video of Amy Poehler leading the charge in the most bad ass awesome moment in TV. 

True Support.
