Tickets go on sale this week for Doha Comedy Day, a stand-up comedy event hosted by Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) as part of the Qatar Summer Festival 2015.

Six stand-up comedians from around the Gulf will perform at the evening event, which takes place at Qatar National Convention Centre on 29 August 8 pm. The comedians are Badr Saleh, Ibrahim KhairAllah,  and Fahd Al Betiri from Saudi Arabia; Ali Al Sayed from the United Arab Emirates and Ahmed Al Shimari from Kuwait. The group will offer concentrated doses of humour along with their Qatari host, Hamad Al Emari.

Mashal Shahbik, Manager of Festivals and Events at QTA, said:

The routines will use comedy to talk about issues common to Gulf culture and every-day life, and we think the carefully-selected line-up for Doha Comedy Day will appeal to all audiences, residents and visitors.’
