Mona Shaikh combines a South Asian sensibility with Americanized values cherishing the First Amendment—the right to bear big mouths. And her fresh, fearless, free speech has raised eyebrows. With her offbeat sense of humor Shaikh is a tightrope walker striving to maintain equilibrium while dealing with conflicting forces. With half of her life spent in a prominent conservative Muslim household in Pakistan, and the other immersed with America’s entertainment and culture, Mona knew she was set out to break boundaries. Today Mona resides in Los Angeles, Calif., pursing her career as a comedian and actor while developing her upcoming One-Hour Special and Comedy TV series. She also made history by becoming the first Pakistani female Comedian to headline Hollywood Improv. Mona was most recently featured on The Yong Turks, Newsweek, The Guardian, LA Weekly, New York Post, Huffington Post, Washington Post and BBC. Mona recently headlined The Real Flava Comedy Club in Dubai and a show in Lisbon, Portugal. She recently got her own show and again made history at The World Famous Comedy Store in Los Angeles called Minority Reportz with a launch of sold-out shows.
An American-Egyptian actor and comedian born in Rutherford, New Jersey. He was a series regular on Nick at Nite’s See Dad Run with Scott Baio and recently had a recurring role in the 3rd season of Mr.Robot. His sketch group, Inside Joke Films, has toured internationally and has a large presence on YouTube. Youssef is also the Artistic Director for the New York Arab American Comedy Festival and the founder of the Middle Eastern sketch group Sketchy Arabs.
Ramy Youssef also just got his own show on Hulu. The show is an American comedy web television series that premiered on April 19, 2019, on Hulu. It follows the spiritual journey of a first-generation American Muslim, who finds himself trapped between the morals of the Egyptian community and life in a politically divided neighborhood in New Jersey. The show tackles most struggles faced by Muslims in non-Muslim countries in a humorous way. Youssef co-created and co-wrote the ten-episode series with Ryan Welch and Ari Katcher, who was a co-creator of “The Carmichael Show,” which ran for three seasons on NBC.
Tiffany Haddish credits her social worker for her success as a comedian/actress. Growing up in foster care in South Central Los Angeles, it was her excessive talking and imaginary friends that prompted her increasingly flustered social worker to steer her into stand up comedy by enrolling her into the Laugh Factory Comedy Camp for children. Haddish has been making people laugh ever since appearing on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, TV One’s Bill Bellamy’s Who’s Got Jokes?, Comedy Central’s Reality Bites, and most recently in a recurring role on NBC’s The Carmichael Show.
Soon after starting her Stand Up career, Margaret won a comedy contest where first prize was opening for Jerry Seinfeld. She moved to Los Angeles in the early ’90s and, still in her early twenties, hit the college circuit, where she immediately became the most booked act in the market and garnered a nomination for “Campus Comedian of The Year.” She performed over 300 concerts within two years. Arsenio Hall introduced her to late night audiences, Bob Hope put her on a prime time special and, seemingly overnight, Margaret Cho became a national celebrity.
