Amer Zahr is an Arab-American stand-up comedian and writer. Drawing on his experiences growing up as a child of Palestinian refugees, he finds the humor in everyday cultural situations. As a Palestinian, politics also fall victim to his comedic ways. He has performed on stages and at festivals worldwide, and produced and headlined two of his own comedy tours, "1001 Laughs Comedy Tour" & "We're Not White!" Zahr also writes and speaks widely on political and social affairs, and has appeared on radio and television, including ABC's Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher.
