IRVINE, Calif. -- The Network of Arab American Professionals, Los Angeles (NAAP-LA) announced earlier this week that it’s co-hosting a comedy show headlined by Nemr Abou Nassar - a San Diego-born Lebanese-American Stand-Up Comedian who is credited with establishing and pioneering the stand-up comedy scene throughout the Middle East where he performs in English. The show will take place at the Irvine Improv Comedy Club on Wednesday, December 14, 2016. As an accomplished comic with seven full feature specials, it’s no wonder Nemr’s latest tour was met with unprecedented success, selling out prestigious venues such as Caroline’s in New York, the Wilbur Theatre in Boston and the Novo (formerly Club Nokia) in Los Angeles making his international tour the first global comedy event to successfully stretch from the US to the Middle East, with continued sellouts in Houston, Dallas, San Francisco, Washington DC, Michigan, Cleveland, Oman, Qatar, Dubai, Jordan, and Lebanon where he set a new crowd record with 5,000 people in one night. Nemr has numerous television credits from major networks in the Middle East, has been seen on CNN and recently appeared on “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore” (Click to watch). He has also released two feature specials as cinematic experiences and his own prime time TV show. In May of 2014 he was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine (Middle East) solidifying Nemr’s legacy as the biggest name in stand up in the Middle East.
