As a comedian, I have had the opportunity to perform all over the world. In the past few years, I have also taken on producing various events around America and Palestine. For the past three years, I led an annual comedy festival in Dearborn, Michigan at the Arab American National Museum, and in just this past summer of 2015, I put together the first-ever standup comedy festival in Palestine. 10 comedians performed for over 2000 Palestinians in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and Ramallah.
Also, on June 5, 2015, I had the pleasure of producing the first all-Palestinian comedy show at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. The show was sold out to critical success. Now, I am bringing that same production to New York City and the world-famous Carnegie Hall on February 5, 2016!
Help me make it happen, as me, Said Durrah, Mona Aburmishan, & Mike Easmeil become to the first Palestinian American comedians to grace that famous stage! We hope to showcase our heritage, tell a little about the Palestinian story, and make people laugh! We want to show the world that “Being Palestinian Makes Me Smile”!!
