ABOUT ANISH SHAH: 3 years ago Anish Shah was a Yale MBA who had spent the past 5 years working his way up the ladder at venerable consulting firm, McKinsey & Company. Shortly thereafter, he wandered into a comedy club open mic to try comedy on a whim. This set off a whirlwind of events that has culminated in Anish performing around the world, on many of its most famed stages, and walking away from his corporate career to focus full-time on comedy. He is spending 2012 raising money for charity through stand-up. www.AnishComedy.com
