Inspirational comedy for eye-contact averse Assyrian Americans
Every time he gets on stage, Jesse is terrified and overjoyed and going to take you along for the ride. Michael Ian Black once called him “that Asperger’s kid,” which isn’t necessarily nice but counts as a celebrity endorsement. Jesse’s brain might be wired differently, but that is the accident that gave him his comedy superpowers. He has performed around the U.S. and in Montreal Just for Laughs, delighting audiences with his sharp wit and emotional vulnerability. In 2015, Jesse made his network debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he joked about Mulan sauce before Rick & Morty made it cool. By being on stage, Jesse wants to prove it doesn’t matter if you’re shy or different; you are a wonderful, unstoppable thing. Let’s all come together and LOL (laugh, overcome, love).
