which featured some of the top Middle Eastern-American comics in the world. The
Axis of Evil Comedy Central Special premiered in 2007 as the first show on American TV with an all Middle Eastern/American cast. The DVD was also released in 2007. The tour started in the US and later went to the Middle East in the fall of 2007, selling out 27 shows in Dubai, Beirut, Cairo, Kuwait and Amman (where they performed in
front of the King and Queen of Jordan.) Maz is currently on his own solo tour titled
"Maz Jobrani; Brown and Friendly", which again is taking him all over the world
including the US, Canada, Europe, the Middle East and Australia. The "Brown and

performances at the ACME Theater in Los Angeles were hailed as "devilishly funny"
and "extraordinary" by LA Weekly.
Maz was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he caught the acting bug after
portraying the lead in his eighth grade production of "Li'l Abner." He studied theater
throughout high school, and then went on to earn a BA in Political Science and Italian
at UC Berkeley. In the fall of 1994, while beginning a Ph.D. program in Political Science
at UCLA, he visited the university's prestigious theater program - and was immediately
hooked back on acting. This led to him dropping out of the Ph.D. program to pursue
his childhood passion.
