Lebanese-American comic Nemr is front-and-center in “No Bombing in Beirut,” airing on Showtime, and can carry out on the Gramercy Theatre (East 23rd Road) April 28.
Right here are some things he desires you to find out about him:
- I used to be on the forefront of the comedy motion within the Center East, and I noticed how highly effective it was within the face of probably the most terrifying odds.
- My followers at all times humble me. Once I made it on the duvet of Rolling Stone Center East and I posted it all people commented how nice it was that I visualize my objectives and that sooner or later I’d undoubtedly make it. They thought it was Photoshopped.
- I believe Raphael is the perfect Ninja Turtle. Everyone thinks I ought to love Michelangelo as a result of he’s the humorous one … however my favourite has at all times been Raphael. He has, palms down, the worst weapon within the group — he’s mainly combating with glorified forks.
- Essentially the most depressing expertise of my life was when, throughout a warfare in Lebanon in 2006 following a bombing raid on my city, the electrical energy reduce out whereas I used to be enjoying “God of Battle” on the PlayStation and it corrupted my saved recreation. I used to be thus far in I by no means replayed. It simply wasn’t value it and I’ve by no means actually moved on. Battle actually destroys every thing.
