Hi, I’m
Raza Jafri.

I perform standup, produce shows, write essays, and make digital content. I’ve curated some of my best stuff and scooped them on small spoons for your sampling pleasure:


Standup is best enjoyed fresh, so if you’re in Austin come to a show!

East Austin Comedy Club

This room is intimate. Dim lights, velvet curtains draped against black walls and no matter where you sit you’ll be just feets away from the performer. With just 45 seats, expect to purchase tickets early. We’ll have a double header every Friday at 7PM and 9PM and drinks are on the house!

Comedy in the Capital

A weekly show I produce at Speakeasy in downtown ATX. It’s a lively room that showcases both local and travelling comics. You can catch it every Saturday at 7:30PM.

Are you a travelling comedian interested in performing at one of these shows?
Please email me at raza.jafri.sy@gmail.com with your dates in Austin, clip, and credits.


I post weekly essays that you can find on Substack. Want to test drive an essay before you commit to a subscription? Check out some of these:

A Jellyfish in Lamu - A near, near-death experience.

What’s So Special? - Introspection on my relationship with others.

Pernicious Mosquito - A fight to the end.

Digital Content

I also post weekly content on my Instagram and TikTok so I can capture the hearts and minds of the youth. These are short form videos that range from the (undeniably) funny to (hopefully) insightful.

Mating Patterns Between Men & Women
