Al-Madinah Cultural Center presents to you our annual Comedy Night. We are excited to announce our headliner for the night will be Ramy Youssef, who made his network debut last year on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, with opening acts from Ahamed Weinberg and Nadirah Pierre.
Our event this year will be taking place at Northrop on the Carlson Family Stage on Sunday, March 25 from 6 – 10 pm. It is our great honor to be able to bring you an amazing show. Enjoy a night full of laughs with great comedians and even better company.
Nadirah Pierre is a 21 year old New Jersey resident. She is a college student at
Montclair State University and, most recently, a social media sensation. She uses
humorous wit and satire in order to shed light on issues that she faces in her
personal everyday life as well as issues that are prevalent in the Muslim and
African American communities. Fearlessly, she addresses real issues and says
what no one else will.
