Comic Relief Celebration: 10th Anniversary of the Sultans of Satire!


Life in L.A., forget about the Middle East, can be hell—so why deprive yourself of some justified comic relief?

The Markaz invites you to enjoy life and laughter with this very special 10th Anniversary performance of the Sultans of Satire: Middle East Comic Relief. The first Sultans show took place in Los Angeles on November 5th, 2005. Headlining this show is the extremely funny and astute Aron Kader, the Palestinian American comedian, actor and writer, who costarred in the original Sultans shows and has been a cultural ambassador with the Levantine Cultural Center/The Markaz for more than a decade.

Our hilarious host is Sammy Obeid, our costars are Marie-Thérèse Abou-Daoud, Melissa Shoshahi, Jennifer Jajeh and Tehran Von Ghasri, with a mystery spot or two set aside for very special surprise guest comedians! This show not only marks the 10th anniversary of the Sultans, but is a benefit event for The Markaz, Arts Center for the Greater Middle East, a worthy cause (our cause is your cause). Tickets are $25 General admission and include a drink, or $50 Patron admission for reserved seating and free drinks. Middle Eastern menu served, 1 food or drink item minimum. Seating is actually limited, this will be an intimate comedy and satire spectacle of the highest order, certain to distract from you from the fact the world is going to hell in a hand basket, yalla! Come out, support The Markaz and make a night of it.
