Her humor writing has appeared on MTV Decoded, Reductress, and in the book Every Body. She has acted in sketches on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Comedy Central, and Adult Swim, as well as several indie short films, including 1/30, which was executive produced by Lena Waithe. Her short film she created, wrote, and starred in, Break Up, Baby, was a NoBudge 2021 pick and Vulture said she has “an enchanting onscreen presence” in it, which was pretty cool. She self-publishes zines, essays, and comics exploring the search for meaning in the trappings of capitalism, which you can find on her website (fareeha-khan.com).
