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.
