5 Arab Comedians That You Should Follow Online

Who does not love a little laugh every now and then? Your idea of comedy may date back to sharing corny pun jokes with your friends or watching a comedian actor – like Mr Ben- perform in a clumsy way.

With the evolution of social media, aspiring comedians are easily able to share 1-10 minute videos with the world to show off their talents and I’ve got to say- they have me in stitches. These following ones are worth checking out:
