Kumail Nanjiani stars in "Franklin & Bash" on TNT as Pindar Singh.

Kumail Nanjiani is a tireless, New York-based writer and performer who first gained attention for his critically acclaimed, one-man University of California at Berkley show "Unpronounceable." The show was a hilarious account of growing up in a highly religious community in Pakistan and making his way to glamorous Iowa for engineering college before exploring standup in Chicago and New York.

In the past year, Nanjiani has appeared on "Saturday Night Live," "The Colbert Report," "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and "Late Show with David Letterman." He won two ECNYs for best standup and one-man show and was featured in both New York magazine's "10 Comedians to Watch" and Variety's "10 Comics to Watch." In 2010 Nanjiani wrote a pilot loosely based on his life for NBC and Conaco, and he wrote and performed on "Michael and Michael Have Issues" for Comedy Central.

Nanjiani can next be seen in Greg Berlanti's "Life as We Know It" for Warner Bros.
