Laugh for ANAK on November 14 :)

Dave Merheje LIVE at Rumor’s Restaurant & Comedy Club

8:00 PM Wednesday Nov 14th – in support of ANAK Inc.

Winner of Just For Laugh's 2011 Irwin Barker Homegrown Comic Award and NOW Magazine's 2011 Best of Toronto Award for Best Male Stand-up, Dave Merheje is making waves as one of the edgiest comics in the country today. Drawing from his Lebanese-Canadian perspective and personal experiences straight from the streets, Merheje is unfettered by political correctness. His "no fear" approach to comedy has gained a loyal following. Pure raging energy, he is electric, aggressive and in-your-face. Nothing is sacred as he fires off on urban life, Middle Eastern politics, Islamic extremists, working in strip clubs, club culture, drugs and masturbation.

2012 has been a memorable year for Merheje. He returns to Just For Laughs this summer where he will be taping a segment for JFL's and The Comedy Network's new joint venture, a 13-hour series airing on The Comedy Network this fall. He made his mark at Moncton's Hubcap Comedy Festival and the Ha!ifax ComedyFest this past spring and in June, completed a six-city Canadian tour with Arthur Simeon's Legends in the Making. In July, he joined the Gemini Award-winning pop culture series MTV Live as an on-air contributor. He was nominated for a 2012 Canadian Comedy Award for Best Stand-up. He became a finalist in NBC's Stand-up for Diversity search and was invited to join the 2012 Stand-up for Diversity College Touring Company performing at select colleges and universities in the US this fall.
