Summary

Muslim father, Jewish mother, an American born in Egypt—Tamer Kattan was born an outsider and that's where he stayed. Very quickly, Tamer became adept at being comfortable in the uncomfortable. Comedy became the weapon of this underdog, enabling him to deal with challenges ranging from school yard bullies to an abusive father. His diverse background has given Tamer a deep understanding of the human condition as well as a wealth of material to draw from. His comedy has been described as energetic and enthusiastic with an attitude that is contagious. He is "always aware of his audience...and his comedy is varied, thoughtful and effective."
Tamer began his comedy career in Los Angeles and New York, but very quickly began to tour internationally. His overseas experiences include tours for the troops in Afghanistan, performing at the American University in Cairo (during the Egyptian revolution) and the Edinburgh fringe in Scotland, where he received three four-star reviews from international press. Towards the end of 2013, he moved to London for one year (following the path of his two biggest comedic influences, Patrice O'Neal and Bill Hicks). Most recently he was featured on Seth Rogen's Hilarity for Charity event with Todd Glass and Hannibal Buress, won the 2015 World Series of Comedy and has TV and radio credits on BBC and SkyTV in the UK as well as on Fox, HULU, HGTV, truTV, Funny or Die, and WB in the US. Commercial credits include Samsung Galaxy S4 (over 14 million YouTube views) and Whitehouse.gov's campaign on religious diversity. He is a regular at the world famous Comedy Store, Improv and Laugh Factory in Los Angeles, and when not headlining on the road here in the US, Tamer continues to branch out internationally. Tamer Kattan is one comic you do not want to miss.

A definite huge star of the future to look out for

What did you like most about Brown Sheep?

The way that Tamer takes stories from his own, sometimes painful, life and makes them poignant and insightful, yet still funny.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The world we live in is broken, only coming together and ignoring bigotry will help fix it.
