Discouraged by the market gap for stand¬up comedy and scarcity of comedy clubs in Saudi Arabia, the ambitious Yaser Bakr set out to create the first comedy club in Saudi Arabia! He put his resources together and shortly after launched AlComedy Club in Saudi Arabia. AlComedy Club offers a regular platform for professional and amateur comedians to develop their routines, but it was Yaser’s consistent effort in discovering and nurturing new talents that make him one of the grand patriarchs of Saudi comedy. On the outside, Yaser is that nice guy next door who lives with his wife and their 3 kids, whom you’d never expect to leave you on the floor laughing. His satirical material is mostly inspired by his personal life and one of his favorite things to do on stage is engage with the audience on social antics. His relentless determination to encourage uncontrollable laughter is one of the qualities that make Yaser truly unique.
