Event Description
Willamette Events Board welcomes comedian Sammy Obeid!

Lebanese-Palestinian-Syrian-Italian American (try saying it really fast) Sammy knows a lot about mixin’ it up. After double majoring in Business and Math at UC Berkeley -- which is why he does comedy now -- Obeid blends his education with his love for being the life of the party, breaking down hip, trending topics until you laugh your abs into a six pack. Voted "Fastest Rising Star” of 2014 in Campus Activities Magazine, Sammy has appeared on NBC's Last Comic Standing, America's Got Talent, TBS’s Conan, and often likes to remind strangers that he was the first comedian to ever tell jokes on the Food Network. In 2013, he may have even impressed his parents by setting a world record of performing comedy 1,001 consecutive nights, with his story featured in Time and The New York Times. And then he took a nap.
