“A Comedy Superhero... If there's one comedy show you attend this year, this just might be the one” - AXS.COM
Nemr is a Lebanese/American stand-up comedian who is credited with establishing and pioneering the stand-up comedy scene throughout the Middle East where he performs in English. He grew up in San Diego and then moved back with his family to Lebanon, breaking down barriers and uniting people in a region where bombing on stage can have a completely different meaning.
An accomplished stand-up comic, with seven full-feature shows, it’s no wonder Nemr’s latest tour was met with unprecedented success, selling out worldwide, making it the first global comedy event to successfully stretch from every major U.S. city to London and across the Middle East—with crowds of up to 5,000 people at every show.
Nemr’s global tour was captured in a brand new comedy special, No Bombing in Beirut, which was filmed in both Lebanon and Los Angeles, and premiered on Showtime in America, and CraveTV and the Movie Network across Canada. Nemr also has numerous television credits from major networks in the Middle East, has been seen on CNN and recently appeared on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore. He has also released two feature specials as cinematic experiences and had his own prime time TV show.
In May of 2014, Nemr was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine (Middle East), solidifying his legacy as the biggest stand-up name in the Middle East.
On the heels of his hugely successful world tour in 2016, Nemr is coming with a brand new show, bigger and better than ever. In short, there is no stopping Nemr from accomplishing in America and worldwide what he did across the Middle East, bringing people together through laughter and merriment. He comes bearing gifts of myrrh and frankincense. No you can't smoke them.
