Laughing in Hell

by Tarun Shetty

Overview
Somebody once told me, "When you become a comedian, you're not just choosing a profession. You're choosing a lifestyle." I should have listened harder. My name is Jay Starr, and I'm a South Asian stand-up comic. I went to L.A. to pursue my comedy dreams but instead got twisted up in the world of Bollywood, meeting the love of my life and became a YouTube sensation known to the world as Tiger Rai. Tiger was everything that I wanted to become. Confident, happy, SUCCESSFUL. I played the best comedy clubs, committed infidelity with the hottest girls, and even got my own TV show alongside my idol. In Hollywood, everything is a fantasy. Even the lies I convinced everyone about how happy I was except the one person who always knew the truth - myself.
