Ass Buster: Egypt Hosts The Middle East’s Largest Comedy Show!!

In brief, because the description and video given by the organizers is way too long and has everything you need, THIS IS HUGE! Egypt’s First Comedy Rumble is here!

Just because everything is over-sized in Egypt, and just because Jordan and Saudi Arabia started having comedy festivals, Egypt just happens to host the Middle East’s largest stand-up comedy festival to date, 3 shows running through 2 days!

Don’t get me wrong… Egypt has recently hosted the largest Middle East leg of the Axis of Evil Comedy Tour in November 2007, followed by “Maz, Ahmed & Friends” in May 2008 and “Arabs Gone Wild” in November 2008.

All of these major events were organized by Benchmark Solutions, and have attracted audiences of more than 15,000 people creating a huge buzz around standup comedy in Egypt, with plans to continue to have 3-4 events per year.

So yeah, there you have it, 2 hours per show of non-stop laughter… so show up or get your balls chopped off!! Oh and guess who’s gonna be there to review the show… yep! Ass Buster’s covering the show!

Here’ are the organizers’ event details and the video after the break:
