World-famous stand-up comedian Ahmed Ahmed is coming to Doha

Are you ready for a whole night of rib-tickling laughter? Then block your calendars for Friday September 27 as a top comedian will be performing live in Doha.

If you’ve watched shows such as Executive Decision, Swingers, MTV’s Punk’d with Ashton Kutcher and Tracey Takes On, you’ll probably recognise the hilarious stand-up comic that is Ahmed Ahmed.

The Egyptian moved to Hollywood when he was 19 years old to pursue a career in acting and comedy, and he has been working there ever since.

He's appeared in several films and television shows, some of which he even makes fun of during his stand-up routines.

He has also appeared on CNN, The View and National Public Radio, and was featured on the front page of The Wall Street Journal in December 2001 as well as in Newsweek.

He was featured in the PBS television documentary America at a Crossroads series and is a regular performer at The Comedy Store in Hollywood.

He tours all across the US and Europe and luckily, he’s coming to Doha this month.

He won the first annual Richard Pryor Award for ethnic comedy at the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland in the summer of 2004. Ahmed Ahmed was also a member of the Axis of Evil Comedy Tour.

He was a notable guest for Axis of Justice, a rock and heavy metal concert which fights for social justice.

Tickets are QR150 and can be bought at the W Doha Hotel’s ticket desk.

The show starts at 9.30pm (doors open at 8pm) and there'll be food and drinks available in the Great Room, where the show will take place.
