Nemr (pronounced like simmer Lebanese/American Stand… but hotter) is a comedian who is credited with establishing and pioneering the standup comedy scene throughout the Middle East. Nemr grew up in San Diego and then moved back with his family to Lebanon. Inspired by comedy and healing powers of laughter, he went on to break down barriers and unite people in a region where bombing on stage can have a completely different meaning.
As an accomplished comic, it is no wonder Nemr’s latest tour was met with unprecedented success, selling out prestigious venues such as Caroline’s in New York and the Wilbur Theatre in Boston. This is the first global comedy event to successfully stretch from the US to the Middle East, with continued sell outs in Houston, Dallas, San Francisco, Washington DC, Michigan, Cleveland, Oman, Qatar and Lebanon where he set a new crowd record with 5,000 people in one night. Nemr has numerous television credits from major networks in the Middle East, has been seen on CNN and recently appeared on “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore.” He has also released two feature specials as cinematic experiences and his own prime time TV show.
In May of 2014, he was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine (Middle East) solidifying Nemr’s legacy as the biggest name in stand up in that region. On the heels of his hugely successful tour, Nemr will continue his 2016 international comedy tour adding more than 20 cities across the US and will soon announce dates in Europe and Australia.
