Author Kosha Patel

Fresh off the plane, Kosha Patel hails from Colorado. Despite her parents’ warning that Californians are “unstable,” she packed her bags and moved to Los Angeles where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Acting from the University of Southern California. Immediately after graduating, she pursued acting for its perks and made guest star appearances on Rules of Engagement, Rizzoli & Isles, Criminal Minds, Lie to Me, Grey’s Anatomy, Ringer, and HBO’s Funny or Die Presents series. She continued training/merrily socializing at Improv schools like The Groundlings and UCB where she discovered her passion for comedy writing. As a writer, she developed a web series with Fremantle Media, and she also co-wrote and co-produced a TV pilot (starring Richard Karn and Bob Clendenin) with Jaguar attached as a corporate sponsor. Currently you'll find her writing and producing content for Comediva.com, a renowned humor site that was inspired and created by three women in Los Angeles. Kosha continues to entertain 14-year-old Youtube critics – as well as her mom – by writing and producing digital shorts (that's fancy talk for "Youtube"). When she is not writing or producing, you can catch Kosha recurring on House of Lies and The Newsroom as well as doing stand up at popular comic joints such as The Laugh Factory, The Improv, and The Comedy Union. And if you still can’t find her … I would try Chipotle.
