Asif Mohammed Khan

Screenwriter, Stand-Up Comedian

Asif Mohammed Khan is a writer from India and Hong Kong. Asif spent his youth in between London and Hong Kong where he first began performing stand-up comedy at eighteen. Attempting to rectify the lack of Muslim comedians on the circuit, Asif developed his craft as he attended Northeastern University in Boston, frequenting clubs in both Boston and New York.

Asif first dipped his toe into the waters of screenwriting in Boston, writing his first feature and creating the web series, Maddie & Me. Asif continued to write short films in partnership with young directors from Boston universities and NYU Tisch, create and produce comedy sketches, and perform stand-up, all while simultaneously completing his own degree in Theology and History. After graduating, Asif continued to perform stand up in New York while focusing on writing his own original screenplays and pilots. Asif's writing draws heavily from his eccentric upbringing, his experiences and his studies, particularly in the fields of theology and history.

After his time in New York, Asif returned to London, where he continues to feature on London’s stand-up circuit. Asif completed his Graduate Diploma in Law from the University of Law in 2021. He is now embarking on his Masters in Law in concurrence with crafting singular stories for screen and stage and is, in his own words, “a dangerous basketball player”.
