(View all readings »)

The New York Arab-American Comedy Festival wants you to pick the first piece that will be officially selected for this fall’s 3rd annual Festival. On Thursday, May 5, the Comedy Festival will be present a reading night where the script submissions we have received will be read by the talented members of the Nibras Arab-American Theater Company. After all the pieces are read, the audience members will vote by secret ballot to pick one piece that we will produce in this year’s Festival. After the reading we will have a party with snacks and beverages. (Wine and beer will be available by donation).

The event begins at 7:30 PM and the script reading will start at 8:00 PM sharp. Tickets are $10 each and are available at the door. If you have any questions, please contact either Dean Obeidallah at or Maysoon Zayid at
