Mo Amer’s comedy is exactly what the world needs right now. Born to Palestinian refugees in Kuwait, Mo’s family relocated to Houston, Texas when he was just 9 years old. As a pioneer of Arab-American standup, he has already cemented his stature as a truly original voice in comedy, opening for standup legend Dave Chappelle over 100 times (including at the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal in 2015), becoming a paid regular and club favorite at the world-famous Comedy Cellar in NYC, and developing a reality series with The Office’s Rainn Wilson, who calls Mo “the funniest comic in the whole entire world.” Weeks after the 2016 election, Mo made international headlines when a chance airline upgrade landed him in first class seated next to Eric Trump. The story of an Arab-American Muslim immigrant sitting next to the controversial POTUS’ son–at a time of heightened cultural tension in America–went super viral.

It is the power of a whole planet, pulling everything around it inexorably into its orbit.”

Her creation and stark portrayal of “Roseanne Conner” and the Conner family on ABC’s Roseanne has been hailed as “the most ground breaking kitchen-sink sitcom since All in the Family, (Entertainment Weekly)” adding, “she’s the funniest disturber of peace that we have.”
