Join us for an action packed night at Toyon Lounge with two of our new favorite Muslim comics from L.A., Ahamed Weinberg and Reem Edan. The two will have you laughing profusely while simultaneously nodding in agreement – and perhaps, gaining a new perspective.
Ahamed Weinberg is an LA based comic, writer, director and producer. Ahamed is the son of a Jewish father and a Catholic mother, both of whom converted to Sufi Islam before his birth. Ahamed’s comedy is a delightful blend of witty self-examination and observations of the silly world we live in.
Reem Edan is a first-generation Iraqi-American comedian, writer and actor. She has performed at venues including the Comedy Store, the Laugh Factory, the Improv, Funny Women Fest, and throughout Europe. Reem's material covers everything from her Muslim upbringing, to cross-cultural challenges, to the struggles of women living in LA and beyond.
