Hilarious Habibis – hosted by Gena B. Jones and Lynn Maleh – is The Hollywood Improv’s FIRST EVER stand up showcase featuring exclusively Middle Eastern/North African [MENA] comedians. The show, which has been featured in Alaraby TV and Between East, aims to bring together a diverse group of artists and audiences to laugh about everything, from brown parent trauma and cultural hiccups to AMC commercials and lube. What began as a way for MENA comedians to get in front of agents and managers has evolved into something so much bigger: a countercultural hub for the MENA community in LA and beyond. Past shows have featured a range of up-and coming and established MENA comics, including Bassem Youssef, Maz Jobrani, Dina Hashem, Aristotle Athari, and Crystal Marie.
