Hi I’m Mahesh Kotagi. I’m a comedian and actor!


I’m a stand up comedian based in NYC/LA. I have been doing stand up for 8 years now and have recently been featured on the following comedy festivals: Burbank Comedy Festival 2019 - voted best of the fest, Red Clay Comedy Festival 2019, San Luis Obispo Comedy Festival 2019, San Diego Comedy Festival 2019.

I also co-host a podcast called No More Tokens! Which is about diversity and Hollywood and we interview some really cool actors, directors, producers, writers, and casting directors. We chat about the state of diversity and inclusion and highlight the wonderful human beings making a difference.

I study acting at John Rosenfeld Studios, trained in voiceover acting at Kalmenson and Kalmenson and am trained in Improv from the Upright Citizens Brigade.
