Laugh Out Loud

Get ready to laugh your socks off as comic Maz Jobrani returns to Qatar’s shores with his Mr International Comedy Tour.

The Iranian-American funny man is a comedian and actor who came to prominence as part of the Axis of Evil group who appeared on Comedy Central. The touring group featured Middle Eastern comedians who drew inspiration from their experiences in the US post 9/11.

He has since gone on to appear in numerous TV shows and films, including Better Off Ted, The Interpreter, Friday After Next, Dragonfly, and Jimmy Vestvood: Amerikan Hero.

Born in Tehran and raised in California, Maz Jobrani’s material focusses on race and the misunderstanding of Middle Easterners in the US. He also takes inspiration from his family to create hilarious skits that will certainly resonate with his audience.

Recognising that we live in troubled times, Maz reflected on his most recent tour, telling wtop news: “I understand people who say it’s not a time to laugh, and I get it, they can’t imagine going somewhere and laughing. My job is to hopefully bring laughter and escape for an hour and a half or two hours and bring people together. People from different backgrounds come together and we laugh together and find our common humanity.”

So, if you feel like getting away from the cares of the everyday, putting your troubles behind you and having a laugh, head to W Doha on May 29 for a couple of hours of good old fashioned fun to help put the world to rights. Tickets are priced from QR220 and the show is for over 21s only.✤
