Read more about Ali Hassan below:
ALI HASSAN is a Canadian stand-up comedian, actor, radio and television personality. CBC fans will recognize him as the past lead panelist of George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight, the recent host of the annual battle of the books, Canada Reads, and the weekly host of Laugh Out Loud.
He is a comedy festival favourite and a Canadian Comedy Award nominee. He has also starred in films like French Immersion, Breakaway and Goon and on television as a recurring character on FXX's Man Seeking Woman, PBS Kids' Odd Squad, the CTV/eOne series Cardinal and will be in the upcoming VICE series, FUBAR.
In 2016, he began touring his one man show Muslim, Interrupted. The show ran at both Just for Laughs in Montreal and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Ali is presently receiving accolades and an inordinate amount of press coverage in 2017 as he tours it in major cities across Canada. For more information, check out www.StandUpAli.com
As a father of four, Ali Hassan is well versed in dodging difficult questions. Or just making up the answers. But when his kids start to ask about religion in general and Islam in particular, Ali begins to consider his heritage. In this solo show, Ali Hassan (Man Seeking Woman, Odd Squad, CBC Radio’s Laugh Out Loud) delivers a bitingly funny piece of work on flunking out of Sunday school, ingesting forbidden fruits, and becoming a cultural Muslim. The show is a refreshingly hilarious antidote to our increasingly troubling global climate, delivered by this mainstay of Canadian television, film, radio and stage.
