Become a comedy star with Comedy Central Arabia

Comedy network searches for the Middle East’s funniest

Think you’re funny? Now is your chance to prove your comedy skills, and become a TV star in the process.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to make the public laugh, Comedy Central Arabia has launched a talent-spotting competition that you need to enter. If you’re always leaving your mates or family in stitches, grab your phone and start practising that stand-up routine you’ve always wanted to do.

If you’re based in the Middle East, and have some seriously funny game, Comedy Central is looking for you. Head to and fill out their form.

Okay, we realise filling out a form isn’t an intrinsically hilarious exercise, but upon filling out said documents, you then have to upload your one-minute stand-comedy routine. Oh, and you’ve got to make the talent-spotters from Comedy Central literally laugh out loud. If you can get them lolling – or, even better, rofling – then you’re on to a winner.

For more information, head to the Comedy Central Arabia facebook page, and before you know it you could be starring on the same channel that features shows like The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Amy Schumer, international stand-up comedy, and of course South Park.

Get writing, get filming, and get people laughing.
