His sister, Geeta Patel, is a writer and director.[2] An investment banker after college, Patel co-founded poker magazine All In while living in LA.

An emcee job, with improvised stand-up in between acts, led to auditions, his first agent, and two dozen commercials in a year.

In 2008-09, Patel appeared as George Patil in six episodes on The CW‘s Easy Money. In 2010, he starred in Past Life on Fox.[3]

Patel co-directed and starred in Meet the Patels, a documentary that he made with his sister, Geeta Patel, that won the audience award at the 2014 Los Angeles Film Festival.[4] The film portrays Patel’s autobiographical[5] journey of trying to find an Indian wife.[6][7][8] The duo have a deal with Fox Searchlight Pictures to write and direct a narrative remake of the film.[9][10]

Patel worked in multiple episodes of the Aziz Ansari series Master of None.[10] From 2015 to 2016, Patel was on the John Stamos TV series Grandfathered.[7]
