SPECIAL EVENT

MO AMER // BIO
Mo Amer is an ArabAmerican
standup comedian and writer of Palestinian descent, known for his
iconic work with the comedy troupe “Allah Made Me Funny” – the longestrunning
artistic collective
of Muslim comic performers in the world.
On October 8, 2018, Amer debuted his first standup
special on Netflix, entitled “The Vagabond.”
The special was filmed at the historic Paramount Theatre in Austin, Texas and features a number
of easter eggs, including a surprise appearance (off camera) by Amer’s longtime mentor Dave
Chappelle (credited as “Announcer”), and original music by members of the legendary Roots crew
(beat by Stro, lyrics by Black Thought). The special was directed by veteran comedy
director/producer Stan Lathan.
A pioneer in ArabAmerican
standup,
Amer’s humor consists of observational comedy, political
satire, and racerelated
material, heavily drawing on autobiographical elements, as well as his
unique improvised, conversational style. He tells his unusual, circuitous lifestory, detailing how he
managed to travel the world without a passport for years before finally becoming a U.S. citizen
after two decades; had an American soldier pull a weapon on him (at a military show) in Iraq; and
once had Bradley Cooper (unintentionally) rescue him in the Middle East.
Amer has performed in well over two dozen countries on five continents, and he is the first and only
ArabAmerican
refugee comic to perform for U.S. and coalition troops overseas. His soldout
shows worldwide include performances at the Royal Albert Hall and Hammersmith Apollo
(London), Acer Arena (Sydney), Nelson Mandela Theatre (Johannesburg), and Shrine Auditorium
(Los Angeles).
Additionally, Amer has toured extensively with Chappelle, performing over 600 shows with the
standup legend, including at his historic run at Radio City Music Hall, where he shared the stage
with Jon Stewart, Chance The Rapper, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Childish Gambino (Donald Glover), Trevor
Noah, Hannibal Buress and Ali Wong.
Amer’s television credits include Comedy Central’s @midnight, TRU TV’s Comedy Knockout, and
HBO’s Crashing. He also appeared on Bassem Youssef’s historic show ‘ AlBernameg’
(aka ‘T he
Daily Show of Egypt’). Last year, Amer made his latenight
debut on CBS’s Late Night with
Stephen Colbert, while Rolling Stone named him among its “10 Comedians You Need to Know.” He
will appear as a series regular on the Hulu original series Ramy (cost
