Pick of the Day: Hilarious Habibis: A Standup Comedy Show Benefiting Human Rights in Iran (in LA) 12/5

The protests in Iran might be turning to a revolution very soon. It was just announced today that three more protesters are being sentenced to death by The Islamic Republic due to anti-regime activities. Given that one death was the spark of this round of protests, this likely won’t quell the anger in the streets of Iran.

With that being the case, those protesters/activists/revolutionaries will need any and all support they can get in fighting for basic human rights and freedoms. Hilarious Habibis, the monthly MENA (Middle East/North Africa) comedy showcase at the Hollywood Improv, will be taking over the Main Room at the Improv on Mon. Dec. 5th at 7PM to raise money for this very cause via The Abdorrahman Boroumand Center for Human Rights.

On the line-up thus far will be Iranian American comedians that you really ought to know if you don’t know them already including Aristotle Athari, Dan Ahdoot, Zahra Norrbakhsh, and Sarah Fatemi along with Hilarious Habibis hosts Lynn Maleh and Gena B. Jones.

It’s already a pretty great, well curated show and, with this edition, there’s an extra special reason to go get your tickets right here right now.
