Friends, it’s time to meet another new up and coming comic! This week’s Funny Human is Dina Hashem, a New York-based standup who is among the crop of folks that will be featured on a recently announced new series of short stand up specials from Comedy Central called Comedy Central Stand-up Featuring, recorded at famed Brooklyn venue Littlefield. Here’s Dina on Conan last year!
There was a time not long ago that the Roast Battle concept was THE hot thing in comedy. Remember? Roast Battle! Some of it was actually really great! For example when Dina took on fellow comic Dave Kinney back in 2017. Really fine work on some of those zingers.
Dina’s very funny on Twitter. Give her a follow! Expect some solid nugs like the ones below!
Working in customer service makes you realize everyone just wants to be understood.
"I understand, sir……
Oh yes I understand…..
I think I understand you…more than I've understood anyone.. I think we may have a real connection here, beyond your forgotten eBay password"

I’ve never been cheated on, but I imagine it can be quite validating
Like if you cheat then wanna break up, I hate you
But if you cheat & still want to be with me, not only do I know you love me, but I know that I’m better than someone
and isn’t that what’s most important
