Nadine Rajabi is affectionately known as “N.A.D.D.ine” for good reason. Her ever impassioned and energized approach to life has led her to break boundaries and defy gravity personally and professionally time and again.
Not only is Nadine America’s first professional Iranian female comedian, she is also a national champion black belt, a world-class soccer player, a competitive snowboarder and a former semi-pro soccer player. Additionally, Nadine holds a B.A. in Biology and an M.B.A. … neither of which she uses in her stand up career.
Nadine’s fearless attitude and quick wit have captured audiences across the country as the face of Bravotv.com’s digital series, Fresh Squeezed: The Real Housewives of Orange County, Housewivesology: The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and The Shahs Come Clean with Nadine, a Shahs of Sunset digital after show in which she created, hosts and writes (currently in it’s second season). She’s also been a featured comic on Showtime’s comedy special, Hot Tamales, TV Guide’s Stand-Up in Stilettos, and Nuvo TV’s Stand-Up and Deliver. She is also a regular commentator on VH1’s “100 Greatest …” franchise plus numerous clip shows and after shows for Bravo, E!, Lifetime and Logo. This past year, she had the honor of being chosen to speak at TEDx Golden Gate Park, where she delivered her speech about The Beauty of the Unibrow: Embracing Your Differences.
Nadine is as dynamic and versatile behind the camera as she is when she’s in front of it. For the past several years she has served as Executive Producer of Bravo’s Below Deck, their new spinoff, Below Deck Mediterranean, and There Goes The Motherhood. She has served as Co-Executive Producer on Bravo’s Game of Crowns, Eat Drink Love and Start- Ups: Silicon Valley and served as Supervising Producer on Miss Advised, Most Eligible: Dallas, and The Real Housewives of Miami. She also lent her comedic talent to CW as a writer on the network’s musical chairs competition show, Oh Sit!
From early on, Nadine was very active in the digital space creating Fox TV Studios first digital show, The Skinny, as well as many other digital shows for various online networks. Nadine also wrote, produced and was an on-air personality for National Lampoon’s College Network. During that time, she also landed her own daily radio show – Nadine @ Nite on XM/Sirius – for which she conducted irreverent celebrity interviews.
Nadine continues to be a comedy club favorite at many of the country’s top venues and has even taken her groundbreaking comedy and arsenal of punch lines as far as the Middle East to entertain the troops.
