Born in Louisiana and raised in the Heart of England, combined with his traditional Bedouin background gives Thamer Alhazmi more material than most! His rich cultural experiences supply endless stories and jokes that make you think and laugh at the same time. For his debut in 2009, Thamer went up against dozens of Saudi¬ based comedians. As a newcomer, Thamer was nominated as the opening act for an impressive lineup of international comedians including Maz Jobrani and Ahmed Ahmed at the Italian Cultural Center in Saudi Arabia. He was also a part of the first Saudi standup comedy tour in the U.S. and the U.K. in 2013. Thamer loves exploring the provocative and pushing the envelope in his routine, and credits Dave Chappelle and Ricky Gervais as his inspirations.
