Description

Dubomedy are the pioneers of the local comedy community in the UAE and do “all things comedy” including stand-up, sketch comedy, improv, script and content writing, variety arts, event and festival production.

Founded on April 1, 2008 by Broadway veteran Mina Liccione and trail-blazing comedian Ali Al Sayed acting as a home to the premiere Comedy and Urban Arts School in the MENA Region.

As award-winning producers of festivals and international events, Dubomedy were involved in the Dubai Comedy Festival as curators to the event, which saw a perfect line-up of global talent including Dave Chappelle and Trevor Noah, combined with the optimum amount of local comics, with the likes of Badr Salah, Fahad Al Butteri and Ibraheem Alkhairallah – all taking to the stage, in one place, over 10 days of seriously side-splitting performances.

Producing international shows such as Dubai Comedy Cargo and Straight Outta Dubai in Toronto to Empire State of Comedy in New York; not to mention the 7 HER-storical seasons of Funny Girls – the first all-female stand-up troupe in the MENA Region.

Dubomedy presents top-notch entertainment and original comedy content around the globe.

2015 saw Dubomedy launch Autism Smiles UAE. A project very close to their heart.

A comedy club for youth on the spectrum and children with other special needs, students learn an array of circus skills, musical comedy, joke telling, physical comedy routines, laughter yoga, magic and more.

They also organize a tour of refugee camps in Jordan consisting of comedy arts workshops and performances three to four times per year with their long-standing Clowns Who Care initiative.
