They’re intelligent, opinionated and known for inducing fits of laughter! Producer Sarah Bazzi presents the Arab Women of Comedy, with a Token Male, just to be fair.
MIKE BATAYEH, the L.A.-based comedian/TV-film actor, was one of the first Arab Americans to bring Western-style comedy to Arab World audiences. Known for his biting social commentary and physical comedy, Batayah’s credo is “Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cry and you’re on your own.”
MONA, a comedian/educator from Chicago and a veteran world traveler, says “Funny is everywhere…so let’s use it for good, people!”. She studied at Chicago’s Second City and has performed at comedy clubs, universities and random stages throughout the U.S. and Canada.
EMAN is founder/producer of Montreal’s successful monthly show BOOM (Best of Open Mic). She has appeared in the NY Arab-American Comedy Festival (2008-2012), Amman Comedy Festival (2009), the Just for Laughs Festival (2010+2012) and the Ha!ifax Comedy Festival (2012).
