Chicago-born Ramzy Sweis is a self-employed vlogger now but he was a culture columnist at the Arab Daily News for 15 months. His bi-weekly column reached 4,000 readers on average. His final column “Dog is God” made Reddit Top 5. They garnered 1.2 million unique visitors monthly yet starting out only at 300K!
Arabian comedian Ramzy Sweis tells us the Barack Obama joke that got him decked in the face by a lady in the audience at one of Ramzy’s shows. He also tells us some good terrorism jokes.
Ramzy Sweis is known as the comedian who never repeats jokes. This guy is a different type of comedian than you might expect, but he could possibly be one of the most important comedians of our time? He did compare himself to Andy Kaufman, so there’s that.
If you approach Ramzy’s comedy while thinking of the great Andy Kaufman, it makes a little more sense. Ramzy wants to make people laugh, and he does it in almost a strange way. But he’s a real lovable guy, the hackneyed one-liners bit he does draws genuine laughs just from the sheer absurdity of it all.
Here’s a guy, an Arabian comedian, who comes out and starts telling jokes about terrorists and Barack Obama, and his jokes made one woman so angry that she left her seat in the audience and physically attacked Ramzy. See the video below, Ramzy bleeding from the lady punching him in the face.
Ramzy was fired on Easter, sadly; perhaps they feared for his safety as he lured a total of 480K readers?
Once he launched RamzySweis.com he practically handed in his resignation as the Arab News alleged he was going rogue. There last words were “Go work for Huff Post”! Working under the tutelage of spineless swine & being fired for the same reason he was hired is the quintessential definition of heartless. Ramzy hired lawyers to shut down the News conglomerate as his former boss (a long time friend of his family mind you) has the vitriol to replace his own name as the author as if Ramzy never existed.
