Minority Reportz, we are the best and most diverse f****** Stand-Up Comedy Show in the country!
“With Minority Reportz, Shaikh hopes to give these up-and-coming comedians one of these alternate spaces.”- LA Times
Minority Reportz, created by stand-up comedian and producer Mona Shaikh, is committed to bringing a diverse AF line-up to major comedy clubs and has featured such comedians as Margaret Cho, Nikki Glaser, Tiffany Haddish, Trae Crowder, Raj Sharma, Finesse Mitchell, Iliza Schlesinger, Mike Yard, Dustin Ybarra. Minority Reportz is proud to announce that it has showcased well over 450 diverse comedians since it’s inception and continues to rapidly grow due to the growing demand of diverse content.
LA Times says “There was so much howling, it sounded like a Magic Show” and Spectrum News LA calls us “groundbreaking”. Minority Reportz has also been featured on Spectrum One LA, Forbes, MSNBC, SiriusXM, IHeartRadio, Kirn Radio, India Abroad, Getty Images, Middle Eastern Broadcasting Networks and Hustler Magazine. Larry Flynt was a huge fan of us when we are fully clothed.
Minority Reportz is a brainchild of Mona Shaikh, a comedian, and producer, who didn’t see people like herself represented on stage so she approached The World Famous Comedy Store September 2015 with the idea for a show that showcases minorities like herself and others. She believes minority voices matter and saw the importance of the role these voices play in our society and the upcoming trend that was about to take Hollywood by storm.
The launch of Minority Reportz Girls Night Out series in 2019 has brought sold-out shows. Minority Reportz also launched GAY AF Comedy Show with a new residency in West Hollywood in June 2019 showcasing all LGBTQIA comedians. It was important for Mona, as a straight Muslim comedian, to be an ally and dedicate a show to the cause. The shows can also be seen at two more residencies, Caspian Restaurant in Irvine and The Cutting Room in New York City. Minority Reportz Desi Girls Night Out made history at the NY Comedy Festival Nov. 2021 with sold out shows and by being the first show of its kind with an all South Asian and Middle Eastern female comedian lineup.
Minority Reportz inspires to be a household name worldwide. Minority Reportz wants to be the Beyonce of Comedy Shows.

Mona Shaikh

Mona Shaikh combines a South Asian sensibility with Americanized values cherishing the First Amendment—the right to bear big mouths. And her fresh, fearless, free speech has raised eyebrows. With her offbeat sense of humor Shaikh is a tightrope walker striving to maintain equilibrium... Read More →
