Pritesh Shah from Chasing His Dreams, Living a Fullfilled Life
Pritesh Shah accomplishes anything he sets his mind to. His oozes confidences and uses it as a powerful tool to be a force for good. He has quickly become a prolific actor, producer and comedian.
After graduating as an accountant and quitting his “dream” job, Pritesh cut his teeth as a standup comic in Southern California, where he was mentored by Chad Coleman (The Wire, Always Sunny) and performed at clubs throughout SoCal.
Pritesh has appeared on dozens of hit television shows, including GRIMM, CRIMINAL MINDS: BEYOND BORDERS, GAME OF SILENCE, recurring on the Emmy nominated SIX on the History Channel, and on the pilot of The Walking Dead: The World Beyond.
He produced the indie comedy FISHBOWL CALIFORNIA and starred in THE BLACK GHIANDOLA with JK Simmons, Johnny Depp and was directed by Sam Raimi. A horror filmed called WARNINGS, where he plays Rashad, the comedic relief, was just released on Amazon Prime. And he recently released his short film INVISIBLE BROWN MAN on YouTube — a dramedy about the stereotyping and tokenism and diversity casting.
Such a fun conversation with Pritesh. Enjoy!
