Breath easy, everyone – Al Hezb El Comedy are back! After a lengthy hiatus, the comedy collective are set to kick off 2017 in style, with a huge comeback show at 3elbt Alwan on Friday 6 January.
The likes of founder, Hashem El Garhy, and regular Mohammed Morgan are set to take to the stage as part of a huge ten-act line-up. Said line-up is set to also include comedians from further ashore – the US, Canada and UK to be exact.

Quick-tongued Canadian comedian, Rizwan Mohiuddin, is set to perform, while south of the border from the US, married couple, Doug and Teresa Wyckoff, bring their ‘naughty’ act to the stage, with British comic, Simon Willis, joining in on the fun, too.
It’s been a whirlwind few years for Al Hezb El Comedy since launching way back when in 2011. Having tapped into the veritable goldmine of comedic talent in Egypt, Al Hezb El Comedy has given a much-needed platform for stand-ups in Egypt. From Riverside and the Garden, to the Greek Campus and El Sawy Culturewheel, there aren’t many stages that they haven’t performed on, while appearances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2014 has also cemented its continuing success.
