Bicultural Mama Sponsors The Diversity Show at Gotham Comedy Club NYC – GIVEAWAY CLOSED

Pin It
Like many families in New York, mine is a blend of two cultures and races. My family life inspired me to launch Bicultural Mama, a parenting and culture site that celebrates the best of both worlds in mixed families.

In this spirit, I am thrilled to announce Bicultural Mama’s sponsorship of The Diversity Show at Gotham Comedy Club in New York City. To spread the word about this hilarious and eye-opening show, we’re giving away tickets for the performance on December 28, 2013 (see entry form below).

What happens when three men -- an Indian, an African-American and a White Jewish guy – join together in a comedy club? The result is The Diversity Show, a performance which aims to break down racial and ethnic barriers and bring people closer together "one joke at a time."

The trio believes diversity enhances all of our lives. Through their unique comedic perspectives, Akash Bhasin, Alex Barnett and Charles McBee tackle racial and ethnic prejudices and stereotypes in a fun, approachable manner.

The audience finds themselves not only belly laughing at witty jokes, but also relating to the comedians’ perspectives on race and ethnicity in America.

See Alex Barnett in action:
