Sayjal Joshi

Sayjal Joshi is absolutely thrilled to finally be playing a villain. Hailing from the boring yet beautiful North Carolina piedmont she earned her BA in Theater from UNC Greensboro and co-founded Greensboro’s first and only improv comedy club, The Idiot Box. For the past fourteen years she has been writing and performing theater, sketch, improv, video, guitar comedy, and stand-up all over the universe. Sayjal recently spent time in Washington, DC performing in a collaboration between The Second City and Woolly Mammoth Theater Company. She currently takes her top off in the name of smart, sexy comedy for the Annoyance Theater’s Burlesque Is More, and will be making her Goodman Theatre debut this winter in the comedy, Twist Your Dickens. Chicago Credits include The Second City National Touring Company, Second City Theatricals, iO (formally ImprovOlympic), ComedySportz Chicago, Laugh Out Loud Theater, The Playground, The Lincoln Lodge, and critically acclaimed Asian-American sketch ensemble, Stir-Friday Night!
