Biography

Azhar Usman is one of the world’s few American Muslim standup comedians. Writing and performing comedy for the past several years, he has developed a unique act based on transethnic and intercultural issues, keen and witty insights, and general observational humor. In 2004, he co-founded Allah Made Me Funny-The Official Muslim Comedy Tour with fellow Muslim comedian Preacher Moss, a 21-year veteran of the comedy industry and a former writer for George Lopez, Darrell Hammond, and Damon Wayans. Azhar and the Tour have been profiled, featured, and/or mentioned in over 100 major world media including, The New York Times, TIME, Newsweek, Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, WGN, FOX, BBC (UK), BBC Urdu (South Asia), CBC (Canada), ABC (Australia), MBC (Middle East), Al-Ahram Weekly (Egypt), Jawa Pos (Indonesia), DAWN (Pakistan) and dozens more. In March 2005, Azhar was the subject of an entire episode of ABC NIGHTLINE; he was interviewed on NPR’s All Things Considered during the following summer; and in August he became a regularly featured on-air personality on Viacom’s newly established MTV DESI. Azhar has performed at universities and prestigious theatre halls and auditoriums across the world, as well as North America’s top comedy clubs, including The Improv (DC, Brea, and San Jose), The Comedy Zone (Charlotte and Knoxville), Yuk Yuk’s (Toronto), and his hometown club, Zanies (Chicago).
