Zubi Ahmed is a Bengali-American queer Muslim writer, comedian, and filmmaker. Born in Chicago and raised in Brooklyn, Zubi used to believe the Girl and Boy Scouts were a myth made up by the Disney Channel and is still not convinced that they are real even though she buys their cookies every year. She is one of the hosts and creators of Kutti Gang, a comedy show featuring an all South Asian female, gender non-conforming, and queer performer lineup.

Zubi is currently working on a comedy web-series entitled “Polterheist” about a ghost (Sibel Damar) who enlists the help of a teacher (Usama Siddiquee) to cross over to the other side. She is also one of the writer/director/actors of a four-episode mini web-series entitled “Token” about three friends who are so high on their way to brunch they can’t figure out the mystery behind their Uber driver’s death. She cannot wait to share these with her very brown parents.
