Krish Prasad is an Indian-born spoken word artist and performer whose work is based around deconstructing human relationships and behaviour, and providing perspective on how one’s everyday struggles with life and its challenges are a near universal experience. Using biting humour, theatrical portrayals, and sudden changes in tempo and intensity, he creates an authentic representation of the modern human and his war with identity.

Krish started writing at 14, and has been performing on stage for around 6 years. During this time, he has had the opportunity to speak at several venues in both his hometown of Mumbai, India and his adopted home of Melbourne, Australia. He tries to be as open and honest off stage as on it but that is something he still does not understand how to achieve.

He also cooks a mean red-bean curry, loves warm weather and warm socks, and is a part-time human.
