In addition to co-hosting the weekly NYC comedy show Butterboy and being a staple of NYC comedy in general, Aparna Nancherla is going on an extensive tour this summer, dubbed the “It’s Me Again” tour.

Aparna’s tour includes her previously announced Brooklyn show on October 18 at The Bell House (a venue she’s appeared at many times). Tickets for that show are available. Ahead of the tour, Aparna’s got more upcoming Butterboy shows in June and July (tickets). All “It’s Me Again” dates are listed below.

Aparna is on season 2 of Netflix’s The Standups, and she’s also made appearances on Master of None, BoJack Horseman, Corporate, Two Dope Queens, and more. Aparna also just spoke about the upcoming season two of Corporate in a lengthy new Vulture feature, which is very worth a read. Here’s an excerpt:

One of those gray areas is Corporate, Comedy Central’s grim workplace satire in which she plays Grace, an HR manager grinding away at a soulless conglomerate called Hampton Deville, which manufactures everything from tablets to war crimes. It’s a critique of capitalism while also being a product of it. “I understand I’m also a part of this system and have to acknowledge that Corporate is on Viacom, which is what it’s making fun of, so in essence we’re still helping them by making it,” Nancherla says. “[Capitalism] is truly an alien monster that is like, Oh I can use your weakness and make myself more powerful! In that sense, also dealing with mental health stuff, sometimes showing up at the table at all is the feat. So, it’s like, okay, one battle at a time. Today you’re dealing with depression, tomorrow you can do capitalism.”

And that’s the relatable part about playing a character like Grace, who, like all of us, is just trying to get through the day. “As someone who goes existential very quickly in my head, I like that the show doesn’t dance around the bleakness of modern life, especially working in a corporation,” she says. “I’ve always been really bad at office jobs because I have trouble not seeing the pretense of it all. My brain can’t buy into whatever we’re supposed to believe to get through the day.”
