YES ARABS CAN!
A Night of Comedy with Dean Obeidallah and Maysoon Zayid

"Two of the founders of the New York Arab American Comedy Festival come to the Wang Center to make you laugh with their insight and wit.
Born in New Jersey, DEAN OBEIDALLAH's comedy comes in large part from his unique background of being the son of a Palestinian father and a Sicilian mother. Dean, an award-winning comedian has appeared on ABC’s “The View,” Comedy Central’s “Axis of Evil” Comedy special and is the co-creator and co-producer of Comedy Central.com’s critically acclaimed Internet series “The Watch List,” featuring a cast of all Middle Eastern-American comedians
performing stand up and sketch comedy.
MAYSOON ZAYID is an actress and professional stand-up comedian, who received her BFA in acting from Arizona State University. Maysoon has performed comedy in top New York clubs, including The Improv, Caroline's, Gotham, and Stand-Up NY, and has toured her stand-up act extensively in both the USA and abroad. Maysoon was the first comedian to perform standup
live in Palestine, performing in Nazareth, Haifa, Bethlehem, Ramallah, and Jerusalem.
Opening Act by SAAD SARWANA
Saad grew up in Pakistan and moved to Canada for college and eventually the US where he completed a graduate degree in physics at Stony Brook. He 's a professional physicist and a published scientist, and still works in Superconductivity. But he continues to make people laugh as "Pakistan's #1 Comic" and the “Wacky Packy.” Saad will have you rolling in laughter as he
breaks stereotypes while talking about physics, racial profiling, and being a Pakistani-Muslim living in the US."
