‘truthfully.’ – An Evening of Stand-Up Comedy w/ Habib Siam

June 8 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


“truthfully.” is stand-up comedian Habib Siam’s attempt to make sense of a world gone seemingly mad.

Laughter and insanity go hand in hand, as Habib engages his audience conversationally and tries to find meaning and hope through comedy.

Habib Siam has toured across Canada with one of the biggest comedy agencies in the country and also brought this show overseas.

Join us for an amazing night of stand-up performed in a way that will have you engaged, get you thinking, and most importantly, laughing!

This is a comedy show like no other and we can’t wait to have you!

This is ‘truthfully.’

Habib Siam

Born on Christmas day, a stone’s throw from Bethlehem, Habib thought he was the second coming and almost entered priesthood. Several countries and questionable life decisions later, he completed a Ph.D. at McGill University only to start doing stand-up.

Habib uses his comedy to make sense of the world that he finds increasingly weird and unrecognizable. Through his stand-up, he raises awareness of the situation(s) in the Middle East and tries to process the absurdity of day-to-day life.

Rather than focusing on the issues that divide us, Habib finds common ground in the experiences that are common to us all – lost loves, failed pursuits, and the many fortunate twists our life paths take if we let go just a little. He finds sanity increasingly overrated and takes joy in watching it all unravel.

Habib has headlined clubs internationally, from Lebanon to France, and has performed in multiple languages. A former headliner with Canada’s biggest comedy agency, he is now touring independently.

His conversational style, composed delivery, and measured pace make him one of the more unique voices in stand-up today and his comedy remains free of clichés and cheap laughs.

He also may (definitely) own more shoes than anyone you know.
