Bhowmik grew up in Nashville, Tennessee. She has a sister named Ruchi Bhowmik, and her two parents are named Dilip Bhowmik and Shuba Bhowmik. She attended law school in Atlanta, Georgia.
She began Ultrababyfat with her best friend, Michelle Dubois, as they had been playing music since they were children. David Cross discovered Ultrababyfat in Atlanta. Bhowmik then toured with Cross while filming his Let America Laugh DVD.
Tigers and Monkeys
Dmitri Martin helped Bhowmik come up with the name for the band by asking her what her two favorite animals were. Bhowmik did not want to use her name to promote the show for a band consisting of three people from Florida.
Bhowmik hosted Variety SHAC throughout its entirety and was the "S" for the acronym SHAC. Shonali toured with Cross where she got her connection to the Upright Citizens Brigade where Variety SHAC held its shows for many years. Variety SHAC was given money to create a television pilot by IFC. Bhowmik also co-starred in the Variety SHAC videos which were completed annually. The members of Variety SHAC have been considered as some of the funniest women in comedy at the time of their show.
