As a director, Amit Mehta predominantly traffics in awkward and absurd humor. Through stories both everyday and epic, his work reflects a dedication to authentic performances rooted in character and situation.
During varied forays in theater, film and television, Amit logged thousands of laptop hours in numerous coffeehouses, co-wrote the film Scenes of the Crime starring Jeff Bridges, shared screen time with chimpanzees, and was possibly typecast as Saddam Hussein’s grandson.
Having previously lived in Milwaukee, New Delhi and Philadelphia, Amit now unreservedly calls Los Angeles home. His kryptonite is yellow cake with chocolate icing. Not the fancy bakery kind; just down and dirty, out of a box.
