Three of Egypt's rising comedians - Amir Ezzat, Mohamed Morgan and Walid Abu El-Magd will take the stage on Thursday 5 September at Maadi cultural venue Beit El-Raseef to present their latest stand-up show, satirising the state of Egyptians during curfew.
 
The comedians will deliver jokes regarding the ways in which Egyptians have been reacting to the ongoing government-imposed evening curfew, set in motion as violence and protests have escalated in previous weeks.
 
Following the performance, the comedians will host an open-mic session, in which the audience will be encouraged to take the stage and share their experiences during curfew.
 
Under the title 'Hazr Hobena' (the curfew of our love), the evening's entertainment will also feature a musical performance by a satirical musical ensemble, 'No Talent', featuring Ahmed Sharkawy and Mohamed Farouk.
 
Programme:
Thursday 5 September, 5pm
Street 151, off Street 9
