KD Entertainment, in association with Vanguard Productions, recently announced the official launch of Lebanon’s King of Comedy – Nemr Abou Nassar – new Middle Eastern tour under the heading “Epic – the Tour."
“Epic – the Tour” comes after the great success of Abou Nassar’s first solo performance in Amman, “Eye of the Tiger,” which took place early 2010 and attracted more than 1,800 audience members in a single night, encouraging Abou Nassar to organize a comprehensive Middle Eastern tour to include Amman, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Muscat, Manama, Kuwait City, Cairo and finally Beirut.
“I am tremendously excited about this new performance, especially given the fact that I am kick-starting my tour in Amman,” commented Abou Nassar. “I can’t wait to perform before the amazing audience in what will probably be the most insane, unprecedented and unexpected performance of my comedy career. As its name suggests, it will be epic.”
KD Entertainment’s Manager Nadine Abdelnour highlighted the uniqueness of Abou Nassar’s upcoming performance, saying: “This will be the first time a single performer conducts a tour of eight cities with performances reaching thousands of viewers every night. It will indeed live up to its title as one of the most ‘epic’ performances in the history of stand-up comedy in the region.”
The performance is sponsored by a number of renowned organizations, including Royal Jordanian - who is the official airline for Abou Nassar and his crew throughout the tour - in addition to Spin FM and Ayyam FM who are the Gold Sponsors of the event.
Abou Nassar’s career is filled with remarkable accomplishments, including headlining his own feature specials – This is why I'm Hot, Eye of the Tiger, and most recently, Made in USA. Abou Nassar also produced and starred in the Beirut Stand Up Comedy Festival, selling out at the Middle East's first Standup Comedy Residency for over seven months, and the Middle East's first live comedy radio show, "The Comedy Revolution," on Mix FM, which is now the most in demand radio show in the region. Made in USA made Abou Nassar the first Arab standup comedian to ever perform to all American audiences in English, gracing the stages of some of the most legendary comedy clubs in America, including the Improv.
Abou Nassar is also the only comedian to perform and sell out shows in Lebanon's most exclusive theaters and venues, such as the Casino du Liban, Biel, Sky Bar, Edde Sands, B O18 Classic, Snatch and Hard Rock Cafe.
