Ep. 156: Tamer Kattan was born an outsider and that’s where he stayed. This Egyptian-born American was born into a family of Muslims, Christians and Jews, leaving him incredibly comfortable in the uncomfortable.
From school yard bullies to an abusive father, comedy quickly became a weapon of this underdog.
Tamer began his comedy career in Los Angeles and New York, but very quickly began to tour internationally. His over-seas experiences include tours for the troops in Afghanistan, performing at the American University in Cairo (during the Egyptian revolution) and the Edinburgh fringe in Scotland, where he received three 4 star reviews from international press. Towards the end of 2013, he moved to London for 1 year (following the path of his two biggest comedic influences, Patrice O’Neal and Bill Hicks). Tamer was most recently featured on Seth Rogen’s Hilarity for Charity event with Todd Glass and Hannibal Buress, won the 2015 World Series of Comedy and has TV & Radio credits on BBC and SkyTV in the UK as well as in the U.S. on Fox, HULU, HGTV & truTV.
An award winning international comedian with TV and commercial credits in the United States and UK, Tamer has a deep understanding of the human condition.
A regular at the Comedy Store, Improv and Laugh Factory in Los Angeles. This is one comic you do not want to miss live.
Listen as Tamer talks to Alex about his incredibly unique, multicultural, multireligious, multiethnic, immigrant experience.
