Alaa Abu Diab – “Mesh Abyad” Arabic Standup Comedy

April 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Since stepping into the scene a few years ago, Jerusalem’s funniest man has gone on to sell out shows across the world from Cairo to London and Dubai to Toronto. His cutting-edge wit and hilarious political commentary have become a classic staple of his work while his nonchalant demeanor disarms (and charms) his audiences.

His new show Mesh Abyad explores the concept of ‘non-whiteness’ and ‘otherness’ and takes a dig at hypocrisy and double standards, touching upon subjects such as the World Cup in Qatar, the invasion in Ukraine, and new material to reflect on the events we’ve witnessed in the past few months. When and where possible, the show’s aim is to raise funds for humanitarian and medical relief efforts in Gaza.

Please note: This show is fully presented in Arabic.
