Jaffer Khan

  • Name : Jaffer Khan
  • Shows : College


    Jaffer Khan is a NYC-based stand-up comic originally from Houston, TX. He’s performed at clubs and festivals around the country, including Oddball, Limestone, Laughing Skull, Cap City, Go Bananas, and The Comedy Attic. He’s the comedy writer at Prohibition Theater and runs the popular satirical social media account, Really Real Girl Quotes. Jaffer was born in Houston but spent almost every summer of his youth visiting his extended family in Karachi, Pakistan. His experiences there helped shape a unique perspective for a Texan. He went to school at Texas A&M and when he returned to home, started doing stand-up as part of the Houston comedy scene. While doing comedy at night, Jaffer was a teacher during the day. The empathy he’s learned from teaching, from being a brown Muslim in Texas, and from spending significant time in a third-world country, all inform his stand-up today.
