FEATURED COMEDIANS:

For some Americans — those who support a travel ban, a wall along the Mexican border and increased restrictions on refugees, all while holding on to the ridiculous belief that the world’s 1.8 billion Muslim hate America, despite the fact that it’s home to nearly 3.5 million of us — that statement probably inspires fear.

Join us for the night of Muslim Funny Fest. It’s our clean comedy show of the festival with an amazing line up of comedians:


Danish Maqbool is a comedian from New Jersey. Prior to standup, Danish worked at Major League Gaming as an on-air talent and has been featured in Forbes and the Wall Street Journal. He started doing standup in 2014 and went on his first college tour in the Spring of 2017 titled ‘That’s How That Works’. He has gone on 3 college tours since and has featured in multiple festivals. Danish holds a laid back style while discussing the moments in his life that have shaped him.


Atheer Yacoub is a New York based comedian and writer. Her comedy is inspired by her Palestinian-Muslim upbringing in Alabama. Atheer recently taped a half-hour for Comedy Central Arabia and has been on Gotham Comedy Live, which aired on AXSTV.
