Q: You have been described by critics as a comic too bitter for comedy
Aamer Rahman: I think basically it’s just the expectation on non-white comedians to pander to white audiences. I think it is just unusual for people to see a brown person who makes comedy for black and brown people, you know?. For someone in the industry to not sort of soften their material or edit to pander to their white audience.
