About

The Kennedy Center presents Iranian American comedian and actor Maz Jobrani in two shows on the evening of Saturday, April 15, in the Eisenhower Theater. Jobrani is back at the Kennedy Center after a sold-out show in 2016. This time, he returns to film his first original Netflix special. With immigration reform, travel restrictions, and walls at the forefront of the public consciousness, Jobrani, who immigrated from Iran as a child, responds with fresh material about the American immigrant's essential place within the fabric of our great nation. At a time when partisan rancor is high, Jobrani brings us together with laughter and material to show that no matter where we are from, we are all the same.

Performance Timing: Approximately 90 minutes, with no intermission.
