Los Angeles comedian Rajiv Satyal returns to his hometown of Cincinnati this month for a stand-up performance at the Fitton Center for the Creative Arts.

The 1994 Fairfield High School graduate quit a job working for Proctor & Gamble to pursue comedy in 2006. He then moved to Los Angeles to become a full-time comedian. He presents his comedy act "Stand Up! Comedian Rajiv Satyal & Friends" at the Fitton Center for the Creative Arts on Saturday, May 11. He comes back to town Saturday, June 22 to perform at the Southgate House Revival in Newport, Ky.

Satyal (@funnyindian) spoke with Cincinnati Edition about being one of four comedians to come out of P&G, about performing political jokes in a divisive climate and hosting a new talk show.
