Lebanese Stand Up

I’ve always wondered why there aren’t more stand up comedians in Lebanon. I mean the place is rife with fodder for observational humour. Five minutes in a traffic jam or waiting room should be enough for a whole set.

One guy who’s done quite well with stand up is Nemr Abou Nassar. He’s had a few shows here and there, including the one at the Casino du Liban which I’ve embedded in this post. Some of the humour is a tad sophomoric for my liking, but overall its pretty damn good. He also has prank calls he does on the radio which you can check out on his website.

    Kat, you may have a point there. We’ve had less practice at being funny though! Love you back.

    This guy really isnt funny, i mean if we compare him to some of the stand up comedians that make you piss your pants. He has some funny impressions but 10 minutes and i laughed once.

    Totally agree…the guy is trying hard to be funny…but he’s not – He only got some ideas that he milked the living crap out of
