“A show of this nature is exclusive to Qatar and we can promise that it will deliver a superior entertainment experience on every level. Bringing together A-list comedians from around the world is a first-of-its-kind concept for Qatar and ADabisc was totally up to the challenge,” Zahr said.
“It is my fourth time here and I’m proud to be here. I would like everyone to come watch the show,” Nassar said.
Kamal said: “I have been the first Qatari comedian for three years. I started in Star productions and my mission is to empower local talents and show all people foreign who live in Qatar that we can entertain.”
