Nardos Osterhart is the funniest person in Grand Rapids #EthiopiansInMichigan

“My background intrigues people. I have this immigrant story,” she said. “I was born in Nigeria and my family is from Ethiopia. I have this perspective of how do I enjoy this new life in America in the context of looking around and feeling like everyone is kind of spoiled, including myself, compared to how I grew up.

“I’d started sharing stories on stage, mostly the set up/punch line theme of a joke, about what growing up was like and from my perspective as a parent dealing with parents who are African immigrants, for example, and that seemed to get a lot of laughs and people enjoyed them.”
