Of course he was funny enough, but its true Maz didn't rock the house as much as Lebanese Nemr(not NemEr!!)Abou Nassar at Fridays' Stand up comedy night at Al Hussien Cultural Center, also this kind of title grabs more readers than lets say "Nemr Abou Nassar was the funniest!" right? welcome to the world of deceive and marketing !
In case you live in Jordan and have no idea what am I talking about, 1st I suggest you have your sight checked cuz the ads are everywhere ,Amman Stand-up comedy festival is on and is almost done, tickets are sold out long time ago so if you're thinking you're gonna catch a ticket for one of the two closing nights (featuring Russell Peters aka "somebody gonna get hurt real bad") then forget about it. The management in the event was really good, vallet service, security, people in lines, good stuff really!and the show feautring 5 comedians was a nice break from day-to-day stress and shit,they also gave the chance to one local rookie to come up and perform, he was fine, some of the jokes didn't fly of course, Mexicans,American Football, Making fun of Asians accents, The Pakistani guy (Ali Hassan)'s Curry jokes.. yea... not so many laughed at those, one British (Sherry Davey) went on and on about how ugly the British Royal family look! I myself was scared to laugh to that to be honest! and that woman hates her husband man! oh speaking of husbands !! the funniest thing ?? whenever a woman was asked a question in the audience HER HUSBAND would answer!!!! even the British dude-married to a Jordanian- did that ! that was sadly funny! more of a sad than funny to me actually.
all in all it was great and worth it, and yea to whoever thought Maz is going to repeat the "youtubes" he didn't! he mentioned the "Persian Meawww" but it was more of telling us about how people reacted to it.
Speaking of funny, did you hear the Tigerwood-ian Rhapsody by Jon Stewart ? watch till the end ...
