Get ready for an awesome night of comedy as prominent Palestinian standup comedian Aron M Kader will be headlining an evening of Middle East comedy on Thursday April 10 at the Levantine Center in Los Angeles.

The show will be hosted by Sammy "KO" Obeid and will also feature a line up of comedians including Fahim AnwarMelissa Shoshahi, Josh Nasar and Omid Singh.

Not only will you laugh with six Middle Eastern American stand-up comedians on the night, but you'll get to browse a silent art auction by talented Arab/Middle Eastern artists!

The Levantine Cultural Center champions a greater understanding of the Middle East and North Africa by presenting artistic and educational programs that bridge political and religious divides. It includes the creative work of Arabs, Jews and other ethnic/religious groups with Mideast origins who are living in the West.

All profits will go to the Levantine Cultural Center, the only nonprofit cultural arts center for the Middle East and North Africa in southern California that consistently presents voices of progress on the MENA.
