Attend a virtual Comedy Show
In-Person for Augsburg Students, Staff, and Faculty
On February 16th, from 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm.
Three local twin cities comedians will feed us with laughter. There is a Q/A at the end with all three comedians.
Our host will be Khadijah Cooper @kcoopercomedy
Khadijah grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis as an only child. Working as a Sexuality Educator with teens, her confidence in public speaking coupled with her quick wit gave her all the fuel she needed to burst onto the comedy scene in February 2018.
Special Comedian guest Star: Ali Sultan @alisultancomedy
Ali Sultan saw his first stand up comedian when he moved to America from Yemen at the age of 15. He grew the desire to go on stage but first he needed to learn English.
Ali is the first professional Yemeni American comedian to be featured on Television when Kevin Hart hand picked him to perform on Comedy Central’s Hart of The City. In 2018 he was flown to Dubai to film a Half Hour Special for Comedy Central Arabia. He was named both Best Local Comic and artist of the year by City Pages. He represented Minnesota and won the Best in The Midwest competition at Gildas LaughFest. His album happy to be here debuted at #2 on iTunes and can be heard on iTunes and Spotify. When Ali isn’t telling jokes Ali enjoys doing a podcast with his mom, Stories With My Muslim Mom.
