Modhesh World may be wrapping up for the summer on 24 August, but it’s all set to host a final hoorah with the Meylas Al Comedia stand-up comedy show. Five homegrown comics are taking over Showtime Zone on 23 August for a free show, so you can enjoy all the attractions before settling in for a hearty laugh.
Abdullah Al Qassab, Mohammed Aly Momos, Abdullah Ali, Wissam and Yusuf ElKott are making an appearance at this family-friendly comedy evening. Each performer is a local star in his own right, boasting exciting credits and appearances on and off television.
The show starts at 8:30pm, giving you and your family plenty of time to make the most of Modhesh World before it closes for the season. With five action-packed zones featuring go-karts, bumper cars, bungee trampolines and arcade games, great adventures await children of all ages.
