Hamad Al-Amari is a Qatari comedian who grew up in Ireland, a rare commodity in this region or anywhere else. Having spent time in Qatar, Southern Ireland and the US he’s had a unique opportunity to experience the diversity in cultures, which helped form his identity and approach to comedy.
With a broad repertoire, his experience ranges from stand-up comedy (his life’s passion and deepest love!), to being a keen ambassador for children’s charities, cancer awareness and local franchises, VIP corporate events and conferences, and producing online shows.
Despite the humor, Hamad is quite an intense character with a very serious side, and has a strong desire to teach, help, assist and educate, all common themes in his social commentary. Obviously not a run of the mill kid, he believes in freedom of speech, saying it as it is, and spreading ones wings.
Known internationally for hitting a Burger King drive-through on a camel no less, Hamad likes to break down barriers and boundaries. Where’s the humor in staying confined?!
On this episode, Hamad shares his one way ticket to a complete symbiotic relationship between man and technology. He also highlights what people should know about Qatar, the breathtaking Qatar National Museum, the 2022 World Cup, if there’s such a thing as Qatari humor, and more.
