Friday, September 13, 2019, 8:00 PM

Winner of 2018 Best of The Midwest contest at Gilda’s Laugh Fest and Stories with my Muslim Mom podcast host Ali Sultan saw his first stand up comedian when he moved to America from Yemen at the age of 15. He grew the desire to go on stage but first he needed to learn English. First year he made local history by being the first to win both Acme’s Funniest Person along with House of Comedy’s Funniest Person contest. Ali began his comedy adventure to become the first professional Yemeni American comedian to be featured on Television when Kevin Hart hand picked him to perform on Comedy Central’s Hart of The City. In 2018 he filmed two specials one for Wanda Sykes’ Epix’s Unprotected Sets and was flown to Dubai to film the first half hour specials for Comedy Central Arabia. He was named both Best Local Comic by Minneapolis City Pages and 2018 Artist of the year, Ali is a regular performer at the legendary Acme Comedy Club, New York Arab American Fest, and  he was named "Top 5 comedian to watch" by Growler magazine, one of 15 Arab American’s to steal the spotlight by ArabAmerica.com and featured by tpt PBS and Funny or Die for his sketch work. He was also named one of the Biggest Comic in the Middle East by Esquire.
