A night of stand up comedy featuring award winning comedian Dean Obeidallah.
San Francisco Weekly wrote: "Dean Obeidallah is a gruff-voiced, shoot-from-the-hip New Yorker...fresh and clever."
The Washington Post called Dean: "an angsty Arab Chris Rock."
Dean Obeidallah has appeared on numerous US and international TV shows including Comedy Central's "Axis of Evil" special, ABC's "The View," "Comics Unleashed," NBC's "Rock Center," MSNBC's "Up with Chris Hayes," Current TV's "The Young Turks," and can be seen weekly on CNN offering comedic commentary on political and topical issues. He also writes weekly opinion articles for CNN.com.
Dean is very proud to have received the "Spirit of Bill Hicks" award (named in honor of the late great comedian Bill Hicks) from the NY Underground Comedy Festival and the Hicks family for thought provoking comedy.
He is co-director/co-star of the soon to be released documentary "The Muslims Are Coming!" which also features The Daily Show's Jon Stewart, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, comedians Lewis Black, David Cross, Maz Jobrani, Janeane Garofalo, Colin Quinn and more.
