Maz Jobrani, the first Iranian-American standup comedian and actor has brought laughter to worldwide audiences over the years while making us proud by not shying away from his "Iranian/Persian" roots- even in an American, English-speaking market. In this episode, we get to learn more about Maz's upbringing, his early start as an actor in school plays and the subsequent positive feedback which ultimately led him to follow his passion and "make it" in Hollywood. As one of the founders of the "Axis of Evil" standup comedy group, Maz extended his fan base across the globe and continues to take the stage at sold-out shows across the world. In addition to his recent Netflix special and his ongoing standup tour dates, Maz is writing a new show and most importantly being a husband and father to his multi-cultural family.
