Comedy Dynamics announced they will release Nemr: No Bombing in Beiruton March 19, 2019 via the Comedy Dynamics Network via iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Prime Video, Spectrum, Dish, Cox and more. The album will be released on March 22, 2019 on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Pandora, Sirius XM and more.
From his childhood in America, to his later years in Lebanon, Nemr recounts his life and touches on childhood, family, relationships, religion, war and the power of perspective.
Nemr is a Lebanese/American Stand-Up Comedian who is credited with establishing and pioneering the stand-up comedy scene throughout the Middle East where he performs in English. Nemr grew up in San Diego and then moved back with his family to Lebanon. He went on to break down barriers and unite people in a region where bombing on stage can have a completely different meaning.
“I used laughter in the Middle East to help bring that region together, and with No Bombing in Beirut, I wanted to do the same but on a global scale. If America and the Middle East can laugh at the same jokes, then what else are they but the same? Comedy is an energy that doesn’t lie, if you’re laughing with someone, in that moment, you’re one and the same, so why not always?” said NEMR.
“Much like comedy and laughter are universal, Nemr’s brand of comedy speaks to many different cultures and embraces the fact that we’re all different in the best kind of way.” said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of Comedy Dynamics.
