NEW ALBUM DROP!
Comedy Records is proud to announce the release of Atheer Yacoub’s debut album, Denied Entry, available globally on streaming platforms.
On her debut LP, Atheer riffs on the differences between what it means to "get stoned" in the US vs the Middle East, owning a gun in a Muslim family living in the deep south, and why you always need an anchor white woman to travel with.
Yacoub explores themes of immigration, gender roles, and growing up in a Palestinian Muslim family in the heart of Alabama. The album features material written and honed by the New York comedian over 10 years while frequently headlining sold-out shows all over North America.
Atheer Yacoub is a New York based comedian and writer, whose comedy is inspired by her Palestinian-Muslim upbringing in Alabama. Atheer recently made her TV debut on Gotham Comedy Live, which aired on AXSTV, and is also a writer for The Breakdown with Mehdi Barakchian, which has aired on BRIC TV.
Atheer co-hosts The No Fly List podcast which features funny conversations with other brown comedians, artists, and interesting people. She has been featured in the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, Boston Comedy Festival, New York Arab American Comedy Festival, The Big Brown Comedy Hour, Toronto's SheDot Festival, Muslim Funny Fest, and 1001 Laughs Dearborn Comedy Festival.
