NEMR is a Lebanese/American stand up comedian who is credited with establishing and pioneering the stand up comedy scene throughout the Middle East where he performs in English. He grew up in San Diego and then moved back with his family to Lebanon where he went on to break down barriers and unite people in a region where bombing on stage can have a completely different meaning.
He is an accomplished comic with seven full feature specials, a prime time television show ‘A Stand Up Comedy Revolution’, a movie release of two of his specials, ‘EPIC’ and ‘Victorious Secret’ – which, when it played live and subsequently formed the basis of the movie, sold out to over 3,000 people in one night and played in a Roman Coliseum. He currently holds the record for the biggest show in every major country in the Middle East, with his last special, Uninterrupted Funny Observations, selling out to over 4,000 people in one night in Beirut alone in July of 2014, and his current special, NEMR, having just sold out to over 5,000 people on April 30, 2016 in Beirut as well.
In May of 2014 he also featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine (Middle East) solidifying Nemr’s legacy as ‘The biggest name in Stand Up in the Middle East’ in writing.
He is now back in the USA and aims to do in America what he did across the Middle East, bring people together through laughter and merriment. He comes bearing gifts of myrrh and frankincense. No you can’t smoke them.
In his Debut self-titled world tour, NEMR has already sold out in Houston, Dallas, San Francisco, Boston, New York, Michigan, Cleveland, Oman, Qatar, Dubai, Jordan, Lebanon and Los Angeles and with scores more coming be sure to follow it all on Nemrcomedy.com.
