Samson Koletkar:

He is the brains behind the Mahatma Moses Comedy Tour. Coming from an Indian and Jewish background, he is one of the influential Indian American Comedian today. He has also performed at the Jewish Community Centre in Mumbai which turned out to be one of the best comic shows of 2009. Raised in a Jewish household, Samson attended the Jewish school in Mumbai, having learnt Hebrew and also receiving training in Jewish prayer. He was even the President of the Jewish community. However, with time he began to realize his interest in  standup comedy.

Samson has a Masters degree in Computer Software and even worked for three years at NucSoft before he moved to the U.S. where he pursued careers across verticals like web, healthcare, manufacturing and banking. While a lot of his comedies address the feeling of Indianness, he also addresses attitudes of people in general.
