EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Born in Cairo, Egypt Tamer Kattan felt like he moved to the future when he left a 3rd world Islamic country for liberal and sunny California. Every city had a mall. Every home had a color TV and every woman had...a face.

Having an afro, an accent and sweaters with elbow patches made Tamer an easy target for bullying and THAT is where he first discovered comedy. At the ripe old age of 7 he started performing stand up for his class mates.

Having an abusive father gave him the ability to take a bullies punch, but the bullies couldn't take it when Tamer retaliated the only way he knew how: by making them the subjects of his school yard stand up routines.

The day that one bullied begged: "Dude, please stop making fun of me and I promise to stop beating you up." was the day Tamer knew comedy was powerful stuff.

2010 marked the first year that Tamer decided to pursue his passion and he's been on fire ever since. He's a regular at The Comedy Store and performs all over town at the Improv, HaHa Cafe, Ice House, etc...Headlining is in his near future.

Find his latest stand up on YouTube: "Tamer Kattan @ the HaHa Cafe" or his pee your pants status updates on Facebook. He loves making friends with people that don't hit him in the face.
