Ahmed Ahmed:

Egyptian-American actor, comedian, producer, and director Ahmed Ahmed is one of the most diverse, multi-faceted talents in the entertainment industry today. In 2014, he can be seen starring as “Ahmed” on TBS’ hit comedy series Sullivan & Son. Executive Produced by Vince Vaughn, the show follows Steve Sullivan [Steve Byrne], a corporate lawyer who surprises his parents when he leaves his job to take over a bar owned by his father in Pittsburgh. Ahmed made his first appearance as unlucky in love, tow-truck driver [and best friend to Steve] “Ahmed” in season one, and joined the cast as a series regular in season two, quickly becoming a fan favorite. Ahmed is currently the only Arab-American actor playing a non-stereotypical role on a comedy sitcom, today.

Born in Helwan, Egypt and raised in Riverside, California Ahmed immigrated to the US when he was one month old with his family. When he was 19 years old he made the move to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the entertainment industry, and attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. His first big break was in the suspense, action film Executive Decision alongside Kurt Russell, Steven Segal, and Halle Berry in 1996. Ahmed went on to appear in a handful of blockbuster and cult hit features including Swingers, Iron Man, and You Don’t Mess With The Zohan. On the television front, Ahmed has appeared on top series such as Tracy Takes On, Weeds, and Roseanne to name a few.

In 2011, Ahmed made his directorial debut with his groundbreaking documentary Just Like Us. The film premiered at Tribeca Film Festival, and went on to be selected at 30 international film festivals, winning several “Best Director” and “Best Documentary” awards. The documentary, a celebration of culture and comedy, follows Ahmed and ten American comedians through Dubai, Egypt, Lebanon, and Saudi Arabia, performing in front of over 20,000 Arabs and Muslims across the region. Just Like Us garnered Ahmed attention on the political front, and he was invited to The White House to have dinner with President Obama, and was also invited to The State Department to have dinner with Hilary Clinton- as they commended him on creating a project that made an effort to break down barriers and encourage cross-cultural dialogue. Ahmed is currently in post-production on Just Like Us Too, which takes place in Syria, Jordan, Palestine, and Oman.

While working in film and television Ahmed’s profile in comedy continues to rise, being hand picked by Vince Vaughn for his Wild West Comedy Tour [2005-present]. Vaughn is currently producing the first ever Wild West comedy festival in Nashville, TN where Ahmed will hold the roll of Comedy Ambassador, performing and hosting shows. In 2005, Ahmed cofounded and performed in the Axis of Evil Comedy Tour which aired on Comedy Central as the first ever Middle Eastern stand up comedy special. Ahmed is also the winner of the first annual Richard Pryor Award for Ethnic Comedy at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival in Scotland.

Ahmed is currently a paid regular performer at the world famous Comedy Story in Hollywood, The Laugh Factory, and the Comedy Cellar in New York City. He regularly tours nationally and internationally, and in summer 2014, Ahmed will hit the road for the Sullivan & Son Comedy Tour with his cast mates from the series, hitting 20+ markets across the country. Ahmed is a true believer that laughter heals, and that comedy can bridge the gap between communities across the world.

Raj Sharma:

Sharma is a comedy veteran, performing around the world for over 15 years.

He was passed at Hollywood's notoriously tough 'Laugh Factory' on his first

six-minute guest spot and his one-hour special, "Raj Sharma Live from Las

Vegas' was the first special (and currently the only) special produced and

distributed by the Factory in 2014, showcasing his quick wit and why he is

considered the master of crowd work.

 

Raj Sharma started his career in Dallas, Texas, and soon began performing

all over the country. Fifteen years in and Raj has worked with some of the

best comics in the business, such as; Bill Burr, Russell Peters, Tim Allen,

Dave Chappelle, Whitney Cummings, Rob Schneider, Vir Das, Dane Cook, Marc

Maron, Chris D'Elia, Joe Rogan and many more.

 

Tom Rhodes calls him "head-crushingly funny". Bryan Callen says, "He's

funny in three languages: English, Punjabi and the future". His passion

for comedy (and a lot of luck) has taken him across the globe, working in

clubs and numerous colleges and corporate events.

 

He is the co-founder of "Indians at the Improv", a wildcard finalist for

HBO's "The Lucky 21" and has been touring with the "Next Generation of

Evil" comedy tour. He is an original member of "The Gurus of Comedy",

"Pundits with Punchlines" and the "United Colors of Comedy". In 2013,

Sharma was part of the CBS Diversity Showcase, opening doors for both a

late night talk show concept and a brand new sitcom, both of which are in

development. IN 2016, he headlined the season 3 premiere of LAUGHS on FOX;

he is also one of the founding members of the 'Weirdass Pajama' comedy

festival in India (where he is one of the biggest names in the business),

taking American comics with him each year to perform in nine cities over 10

days to over 100,000 comedy fans.

 

Born and raised in Texas and brought up in a traditional Hindu household

gave him all the influence he needed. Raj's style of humor can be enjoyed

by anyone of any age or background. Hilarious everyday observations

combined with his upbringing and sensational crowd work is what you can

expect at every show.

 

Raj is now the co-creator of "Raj Sharma Presents…..", a series of comedy

shows benefitting various charities
