New York Arab-American Comedy Festival
Joe DeRosa

In our current political climate, it would be fair to assume that Arab-Americans could use a laugh. Since 2003, this festival has gathered new and well-known names from within the community for some epic acts. 1001 Arabian Comics on Thur 29 features nearly 20 names barrelling through quick stand-up sets; Legends of Arab Comedy on Fri 30 at 8pm unites some famous faces to dig into one another, followed by the filthy and outrageous Harram Show at 10:30pm. Saturday's Last Laugh Before Deportation at 7:30pm gives veteran acts the chance to go into Trump, and the Arab Comedy All-Stars show at 10pm brings together stand-ups from the U.S., Canada and Middle East to share humor.
