Famous comedians such as American Michael Winslow, who’s billed as “the man of 10,000 sound effects,” and Arab-American Dean Obeidallah and Aron Kader from the acclaimed Axis of Evil comedy tour will bring in the laughs to Dubai next week as part of the ongoing Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF 2013).
They will be joined by Dubai’s ‘first lady of comedy’, Mina Liccione from Jan. 22-26 at the first ever Dubai International Comedy Carnival at the Dubai Festival City. The event will bring together stand ups from the United States and the Middle East. “The carnival will feature some well-known international and regional comedians performing in Dubai,” Ali Al-Sayed, the founder and CEO of Dubomedy Arts, the organizers of the even, was quoted as saying in the local media.
Al-Sayed will also perform along with his wife and company co-founder, Liccione. Other funny men who will participate in the carnival include: Amro Qatamesh, Nemr Abou Nasser, Thamer Al-Hamzi and Bader Saleh.
Apart from stand-up comedy, the carnival will also feature a GCC break dance competition, a rock music competition for schools and performances by local bands, a make-your-own film competition and an amateur stand-up competition.
