Comedian Nemr Abou Nassar has a pretty busy year ahead of him. The famous jokester will start out his 2018 campaign with residencies in San Francisco, Montreal, Houston and Tampa before spending the rest of the spring and summer making audiences laugh while touring across North America.
A handful of Nassar’s upcoming tour schedule features him setting up camp and performing over a stretch of multiple nights in different cities. Notable stops on his 2018 schedule that are billed as one-off performances include a hometown show at San Diego’s Balboa Theatre on March 3, Boston’s The Wilbur on Cinco De Mayo (May 5) and Los Angeles’ The Novo on May 12, just to name a few. His run of stand-up performances will carry on throughout the end of summer as he performs more scheduled shows in smaller U.S. and Canadian markets.
Known primarily by just Nemr, the growing comic has come a long way since firmly establishing Western comedy styles in the Middle East area of the world, where he was born before growing up in southern Calif. Since launching his career in the early 2000s, Nemr has become a big global name thanks to bringing his Americanized style of performing to parts of the world still developing in terms of modern stand-up comedy. Nemr’s most recent project came in the form of a stand-up special on Showtime titled “No Bombing in Beirut.” Clips from the live special, which was filmed in both Beirut and Los Angeles, can be watched in the video above.
