Ali Hassan is a stand-up comic and actor as well as the host of Laugh Out Loud on CBC Radio and SiriusXM, on which he wrangles top Canadian comedians for a listenership of over 1 million people. Previously the Lead Comedy Panelist on George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight, Ali can be seen on television now with recurring roles on Man Seeking Woman (FX), Odd Squad (PBS Kids), Game On (YTV), and the upcoming CTV mini-series Cardinal. Ali has also acted in the films Breakaway, French Immersion and GOON. He brings ten years of experience performing stand-up comedy internationally. Ali has performed at both the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal and JFL42 in Toronto, the Amman Stand-Up Comedy Festival in Jordan, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in the UK.

SHOW DESCRIPTION

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 rising star of television, film, radio and stage.
