Zahra Noorbakhsh, Comedian & TDPS Alum

Zahra Noorbakhsh (B.A. '06) Among '10 Cal Alumnae You Should Know'

"Noorbakhsh’s work offers a perspective and narrative that are not customarily encountered in comedy. She is the co-host of the #GoodMuslimBadMuslim podcast, which explores the American Muslim female experience. In 2019, both performances of her stand-up comedy special, On Behalf of All Muslims, were sold out."

“By performing rituals and creating altars inside La Casa Verde — by turning La Casa Verde into an altar itself — we are coming together in resistance inside the home as a way to join the resistance and protest throughout the city,” said Espinoza.
