Alaudin Ullah

Alaudin Ullah was one of the first South Asians to appear as a stand-up comedian on national television, on channels including Comedy Central, BET, MTV, and PBS. Alaudin later joined as an inaugural member of the Public Theater’s Emerging Writers Group, where he developed his solo show Dishwasher Dreams, which has since been in festivals and workshops such as “New Works Now!” at the Public Theater, the New York Theater Workshop, New York Stage and Film, the Cape Cod Theater Fest, and Silk Road. His journey researching his father for the solo play was incorporated into Vivek Bald’s Bengali Harlem (2013, Harvard University Press). Alaudin’s voice was recently featured as the character of Hanuman in the award-winning animated film Sita Sings the Blues.
