MAIN ROOM SPECIAL EVENT

NASSER AL-REYESS

Arab-American comedian Nasser Al-Rayess, widely known as @naw_sir (or “the 'Shawarma King’), has emerged as an exciting new figure in the comedy world through his comedic prowess and exploration of his Arab-American identity. His honest take on pop culture and news, along with observational humor around identity and popular Arab music, have led him to gain nearly a million followers, views, and likes across his social media platforms. Nasser’s influence, however, extends far beyond the phone screen. His interactive comedy show, “Habiiibi Nights” has toured internationally to Dubai, NYC, Chicago, San Francisco, LA, and beyond. Habiiibi Nights is a testament to Nasser’s fresh comedy, blending humor, Arabic music, and the atmosphere of a traditional Arab gathering that leaves audiences of all backgrounds entertained, humored, and embraced. With an aspiration to revolutionize Arab-American comedy, Nasser is pushing Arab culture into the mainstream, as he continues to captivate audiences on his journey of unapologetic self-acceptance.
