You may think the days of racial profiling at the airport have died down, but Indian comedian Paul Varghese isnt taking any chances. If Im late to a flight, I cant run into an airport, says Varghese, who was featured on Last Comic Standing. Varghese understands the fear, though; in fact, he identifies with it. Im scared of terrorism, too, he says, adding that hes tired of hearing flying is the safest form of travel. Nobody gets hijacked walking, Varghese says. Its not like some terrorist jumps on you piggyback [and says] Take me to Beirut. Dont run; it tickles. The bulk of Vargheses material deals with his heritage and ethnicity (e.g., arranged marriages, excelling in academics, etc.), making him the perfect choice to host Indians at the Improv today, which also features the South Asian stylings of Raj Sharma and Aaron Aryanpur. See if they can match Vargheses wit.
