Maz Jobrani in Beirut
From the ‘Axis of Evil’ and the ‘Brown & Friendly’ comedy tours, SANAD is bringing Maz Jobrani back to Beirut!
SANAD is an independent non-governmental non-profit organization established in January 2010 in an effort to fill an important gap in the Lebanese healthcare system. Their focus is on the preservation of dignity and relief of suffering in patients with terminal illness in order to maintain the best possible quality of life. We strive to empower patients and their families to become skilled in their own care and allow them to make informed choices that are in line with their values and beliefs.
Maziar “Maz” Jobrani is an Iranian-American comedian who was part of the “Axis of Evil” Comedy Tour, which featured some of the top Middle Eastern-American comics in the world. The Axis of Evil Comedy Central Special premiered in 2007 as the first all Middle Eastern show on American TV. Maz Jobrani has played many characters in flim and televison. Most recently, he played Gourishankar P.V. Subramamiam, an Indian lawyer turned NY cab driver who took part in the plot to rob Mick Jagger in the ABC sitcom “Knights of Prosperity.” Prior to that he was best known for his big screen role as “Moly” in Ice Cube’s “Friday After Next.” He also played Secret Service Agent “Mo” in the Sydney Pollack thriller “The Interpreter,” opposite Sean Penn and Nicole Kidman as well as Jennifer Garner’s colleague, Glenn, in “13 Going on 30.” Additional film credits include the critically acclaimed “Maryam,” touted by Roger Ebert as one of the most overlooked films in 2000, the Kevin Costner drama “Dragonfly,” and independent films “Season of Madness,” “Something Borrowed”, “Moonpie” and “Bug.”
