Golden Globe-winning Egyptian American stand-up superstar Ramy Youssef is performing two shows at London's Leicester Square Theatre on February 17. All proceeds will go to the Syria and Turkey earthquake Relief Fund.
Ramy Youssef is an award-winning Egyptian American creator, actor, producer, director, and comedian who brings his unique voice and perspective to his storytelling. Youssef created, produces, directs and stars in the hit Hulu show “Ramy,” which is inspired by his own experiences centering around a first-generation Egyptian-American Muslim on a spiritual journey in his politically divided New Jersey neighborhood. He won a Golden Globe® in 2020 on behalf of “Ramy” in the category of “Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.” In 2020, the Television Academy nominated Youssef for two Emmy Awards® in the categories of “Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series” and “Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series” on behalf of the second season of “Ramy.” Youssef was also nominated for a Critics’ Choice Award and a Writers Guild Award for his one-hour HBO comedy special “Ramy Yossef: Feelings” produced by A24.
Youssef is a co-creator and executive producer of Netflix’s new series “Mo,” a semi-autobiographical series inspired by Amer’s life as a Palestinian refugee growing up in Houston. “Mo” recently debuted to critical acclaim and was produced with A24 and Youssef’s new production company, Cairo Cowboy. The show premiered in August of 2022.
The third season of Youssef’s widely celebrated “Ramy” aired on September 30th, 2022. While working on “Ramy,” Youssef began creating and developing several exciting projects. One of these will star “Ramy” series regular Steve Way in a story illustrating the perspective and experience of a disabled person and their family in a real way. Youssef will executive produce both this series and a number of other projects with A24 and his production company, Cairo Cowboy.
