Nemr is a Lebanese/American Stand-Up Comedian who is credited with establishing and pioneering the stand-up comedy scene throughout the Middle East where he performs in English.

His second international tour became the second global comedy event to successfully stretch from the US to the Middle East, with crowds of up to 6,000 people at every show. The first global comedy event to achieve this milestone was, simply, Nemr's first world tour.
