Stand Up and Be Laughed At

Posted on April 5, 2007


Cairo is a comedy cow and we’re milking it.

Stand Up Cairo is reviving the lost art of Egyptian stand up comedy. We will be holding auditions on the April 15 and 16 from 6-10 pm during which talented individual performers will be invited to perform a two minute skit of original material in Arabic or English. We are talking here about classic stand up: one (wo)man and a microphone. We are not interested in theatre troupes, nor do we want re-enactments of 1960s monologues. We are looking for the accountants, students, waiters and doctors who can find the comedy in Cairo’s craziness.

When: 15/16 April 2007 from 6-10pm
