Born in the Great State of New Jersey, his comedy comes in large part from his unique background of being the only son of a Palestinian father and a Sicilian mother. Both his parents have provided him with an enormous amount of material, usually unintentionally.
He was a practicing lawyer for several years until the other lawyers he worked with suggested he perform in the New Jersey Bar Association's funniest lawyer show. He is pretty sure that was their way of telling him to find a new career.
He recently had one of his proudest moments as a comic when he was awarded the first annual "Bill Hicks Spirit Award," for "thought provoking comedy" from the NY Underground Comedy Festival and the Hicks' family. The late Bill Hicks was a comedian who challenged the audience and made them actually think about political and social issues while making them laugh.
His new one man show entitled, "I Come in Peace," which is a comedic and truthful look at his life as an Arab-American in the post 9/11 world, recently ran as part of the 2006 NY Fringe Festival and had a successful Off-Broadway run as well.
