About

DU KIRPALANI is a writer and comic. His goal in life is to be the Woody Allen of TV, only more handsome. Raised in Hong Kong, Japan and India by a single mom, Du is proud to be a multicultural, multilingual feminist with daddy issues. As a comic, Du has featured for the MAKE A WISH FOUNDATION and across the state of CA. The stage is where Du hones his joke writing skills for his true love, TV writing. He currently freelances for TIME TO ROCK, a Brazilian animated children’s show. Recently in the digital space, Du was on the writing staff for FREDs YouTube Channel and BachelorsPadTV, the YouTube channel that catapulted Andrew Bachelor into Vine’s biggest sensation. Du’s original pilots have also been well received by the diversity fellowships. Last year, Du was a FINALIST for the ABC-Disney Fellowship and a SEMI-FINALIST for the Warner Brothers Program in 2013. When he’s not writing, Du can be seen practicing Ninjitsu across LA where random people often point at him and say, “Why?”
