Writer. Actor. Comedian. It Girl.
A BIT ABOUT ME...
Nikita Redkar is a comedian and writer based in New York City originally from Texas. Her style is fun, flirty, and endearingly charismatic - much like the drunk girl you befriended in the bathroom last weekend.
As a standup comedian, Nikita has performed all over the US and was described as an “Austin comedy staple” by TimeOut Magazine. She was a semifinalist in 2019’s Funniest Person in Austin contest, beating over 100 comedians for the spot. She also co-hosted the always sold-out, sex-positive comedy show, Naughty Bits and regularly opened for national comedians such as Jermaine Fowler and Sean Patton. In London, she performs in some of the city’s most popular venues - such as the Bill Murray Comedy Club.
Nikita has a MA in Screenwriting from MetFilm School and also is an online content creator. She’s traveled to over 40 countries, is queer and Indian-American. In her free time she likes to play the guitar, party with friends and lovers, and discuss her private life way too loudly in restaurants.
Nikita brings her witty and relevant style into jokes about pop culture, queerness, and politics online.
She has over 500K followers on TikTok - her videos have amassed over 8M likes and have been reposted by famous people you definitely know!
Nikita has starred in multiple shorts, comedy sketches, and has played the lead actress in two web series: Gym Buddies (directed by Shruti Saran), and Paranormal Disruption, created by Nikita herself. She has also appeared in videos for FusionTV and Buzzfeed.
As a professional screenwriter, Nikita was hired right out of college to develop an action rom-com for Boundscript Motion Pictures, headed by acclaimed Bollywood director Sujoy Ghosh.
She has written for Season 1 of The Green Room, premiering on Ovation TV Network in March 2022.
Nikita has written two original feature films and two original comedy TV pilots, one of which earned her a place on the BBC Comedy Writers’ Room.
