Laugh City Presents Sammy Obeid (Conan)

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Lebanese-Palestinian-Syrian-Italian-American, born in Oakland, California, Sammy Obeid is best known for his 1,001 day streak of consecutive comedy performances. It began on December 26th, 2010, and concluded on September 21st, 2013– four days after an appearance on TBS’s Conan. Breaking the old world record on Day 731, Sammy set the new one at 1,001 Arabian Nights of Comedy.

Over the course of the streak, he appeared on NBC’s America’s Got Talent and advanced to the Las Vegas round, and became the first comedian to perform on The Food Network in Throwdown with Bobby Flay. Splitsider conducted an extensive interview with him entering the home stretch. LA Weekly praised Sammy’s “sheer force of will” in performance and lifestyle, and LA Mag recommended his show highly. He was profiled in TIME Magazine, followed soon after by an article in the New York Times. Published on his final day, it describes his material as “full of wordplay” and “clever misdirection.”

Also Featuring:

Lyall Behrens: This Hollywood Laugh Factory regular can do a spot-on impression of one of his comedy idols, Eddie Murphy, and has shared the stage with standup heavyweights Paul Mooney and Ali Wong. Lyall's stand up has appeared on Hulu's Comedy Time series.
