A Comedy Show by Mazen Zahreddine

 

Depressed and witty to death, Mazen Zahreddine dissects being a Lebanese comedian, Arab-Israeli relations, anti-semitism, Christian traditions, and Islamic teachings. All profoundly important issues that Mazen deal with in customary and total lack of tact.
Jokes about taking an actual cow on a date seamlessly blend with critiques of religious doctrines. Irreverent, disrespectful, highly offensive and utterly hilarious. This is not a show for the easily offended.

Mazen’s Bio
Mazen Zahreddine was born in Lebanon during the Israeli invasion of Lebanon. Described as a bit of a dick by his mother, Mazen grew up to be an annoying teenager with a misplaced high sense of worth. He started several bands and started performing his stand up routines in poetry events and open mic nights in Beirut. He quickly rose to the surface and soon enough he became a normal sized fish in a very small pond. He knew then he had to go to the West where all things worthwhile happen. He got married and got a kid to ease the visa process and went with them to the West, that beautiful magical place where all dreams come true. He soon abandoned his family to chase his dream moving to Montreal to become famous. An inspiring story so far that left the world breathless in anticipation.
