Egyptian theatre comedy star Mohamed Negm died early on Wednesday at the age of 75 at a hospital in Dokki, Cairo after suffering a stroke.

Negm began his career in the 1960s with the troupe of iconic theatre director and actor Abdel-Monim Madbouly. He appeared in numerous films and TV series before eventually establishing his own theatre.

Negm put on dozens of plays, but 'Esh El-Maganeen' (1979), with Hassan Abdeen and Laila Elwy, has always been one of his most popular, and it was staged for over three years.

The comedian gave many classic performances including in Hekayty Ma'a El-Zaman, Moled Ya Donia, Bamba Kashar and many others.
