Folks, it’s time for Funny Human of the Week, where we gather around our screens and appreciate the work of an up-and-coming comedian. This week, we’re going to get to know Mohanad Elshieky, a New York-based comic who’s been featured on Conan and Comedy Central, and currently works on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee! You’re gonna love his jokes, I’m sure of it. Let’s start with that Conan set!
Mohanad’s stand up draws from his experiences growing up in Libya, here’s a really wild story he told on Comedy Central about an exchange he had with a militia there several years ago, among other real fun bits.
Let’s learn more about Mohanad via this interview on the live Portland talk show Late Night Special!
