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 six 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 latest special, Uninterrupted Funny Observations, selling out to over 4,000 people in one night in Beirut alone in July of 2014.

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 on 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.

Catch Nemr in his debut U.S. tour before he heads off to wrap up in the Middle East with shows in Dubai, Qatar, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Lebanon - making this the first ever stand up comedy global event.

Featuring NEMR.

These events sell out around the country, save countless lives and continue to raise national and international awareness. We support other pitbull "type" dog rescues around the country. Chicago based nonprofit, Players For Pits will have the Pibbles availalbe for adoption. Players for Pits will be selling merchandise, accepting donations and receive 100% of proceeds from the silent auction at the event. Ticket proceeds will benefit the Stand Up For Pits Foundation. We are all in this together and there is much work that needs to be done. We thank you all for your dedication to being the voice of the voiceless and being part of the solution to saving lives and look so forward to seeing you all in Chicago! -SUFP Foundation To learn more about the Stand Up For Pits Foundation go to Shows are age 18 and over unless noted otherwise; valid ID required.
