Maziyar “Maz” Jobrani is an Iranian-American comedian who was part of the “Axis of Evil” Comedy Tour, 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 all Middle Eastern show on American TV.
Maz Jobrani has played many characters in film and television. Most recently, he played Gourishankar P.V. Subramamiam, an Indian lawyer turned NY cab driver who took part in the plot to rob Mick Jagger in the ABC sitcom “Knights of Prosperity.” Prior to that he was best known for his big screen role as “Moly” in Ice Cube’s “Friday After Next.” He also played Secret Service Agent “Mo” in the Sydney Pollack thriller “The Interpreter,” opposite Sean Penn and Nicole Kidman as well as Jennifer Garner’s colleague, Glenn, in “13 Going on 30.” Additional film credits include the critically acclaimed “Maryam,” touted by Roger Ebert as one of the most overlooked films in 2000, the Kevin Costner drama “Dragonfly,” and independent films “Season of Madness,” “Something Borrowed”, “Moonpie” and “Bug.”
He has done standup on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn,” Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend,” and England’s Paramount 2 Network. He also performs standup at The Comedy Store and The Laugh Factory on LA’s famous Sunset Strip as well as many top clubs in New York, including The Comedy Cellar. His routine has been featured on CNN, CBS, PBS, and NPR; as well as being highlighted in Time Magazine, Newsweek, The New York Times, The LA Times and The Wall Street Journal. His sketch comedy performances at the ACME Theater in Los Angeles were hailed as “devilishly funny” and “extraordinary” by LA Weekly.
Jobrani makes jokes about racism, mainly racism against Iranians and Arabs, but also makes a lighter note that they are not perfect, stating some of the flaws. His jokes tend to brighten up the stereotypical view of Middle Easterners.
