The standup comedy collective El-Hezb El-Comedy will present a line up of four comedians on the Nile deck tent of Eat and Barrel restaurant.

The lineup will include Hashem El Garhy, Mina Rafat Selim, Marwan Imam and Mohammed Morgan.

Launched in August 2011 by Hashem El Garhy, El-Hezb El-Comedy is a local comedy troupe with a network of over 30 comedians dedicated to stand-up performances, sketches and musical comedy.

El-Hezb El-Comedy functions as a platform for comedians, uniting them in a market relatively young in Egypt.

Since its launch it has developed to present its comedians into the professional world, offering services including scriptwriting, workshops and many forms of content development.

Recently in August 2014, El-Hezb El-Comedy presented its first international show, “Falafel, Houmous and Baba Ganoush,” at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Eat and Barrel will host music nights every weekend in Ramadan. The first of these nights is Thursday, 25 June, featuring the band Salalem. On Friday, 26 June, Metkal Band is set to perform.
