So a few years ago San Diego comedian Gina Manning recommended me to her then partner Al Gavi, saying I might be a good fit for Comedy Heights. A little hole in the wall comedy show in University Heights every other Saturday. I’d only been a stand up comic for a short time so Al took a risk taking me on board … but like the say ‘the rest is history’. I promised Al ‘If we build it they’ll come’ … and it worked. Al is the best partner ever! He just said ‘ok’ to all of my ideas and I went for it. I came up with a mission that kept up focused on our goals and we went to a weekly ‘clean comedy’ show packed with a diverse mix of strong comedians and fresh new talent. It’s worked. 2 years later we are still strong as ever and it’s my favorite room hands down because the audience rocks! We build a ‘kill room’ that comedians love and the audience keeps coming back to. Yay Team! It takes a village 🙂
I’m working on my scariest bits for Halloween … or maybe anything to keep kids away from my candy stash at the door … either way we’re having fun with it. Thursday Comedy at the Comedy Palace is really taking off as the best Kurdish Australian comedy in Southern California .. maybe ALL of California. Matin Atrushi and I think Jimmy Kimmel will be calling any minute to book us. Well, any hour.
Comedy Heights is definitely having a show on Halloween and we’ve booked Joseph De Paul the Comedy Magician to headline .. so put on your costumes and plan to stop at the show everyone is ‘yelping’ about.
Most Saturdays if I’m not booked elsewhere, I’m hosting my favorite show on the planet – Comedy Heights at Twiggs. Al Gavi and I have built this show into one of the city’s best ever. Top lined ups every Saturday and brilliant audiences who are super friendly and love to laugh. Last Comic Standing’s Dat Phan and Taylor Tomlinson love our stage, as do so many other headlining and touring comedians who done everything from Kimmel to Comedy Central and beyond. Come and check out the show any Saturday 8pm. Doors open 730pm. Parking can be a bit tough so come prepared with a pocket full of patience 🙂 See you there soon.
