This is pretty amaz­ing news for lo­cal co­me­di­ans: There’s now a show on Com­edy Cen­tral fea­tur­ing home­grown ta­lent. Com­edy Cen­tral Presents was recorded at Stereo Ar­cade in Dubai last month and pre­mieres on the chan­nel on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 5. The stand-up show fea­tures 30 Arab co­me­di­ans – pro­fes­sion­als and ama­teurs – per­form­ing in Ara­bic and English. The 10 half-hour episodes are hosted by UAE com­edy vet­eran Ali Al Sayed (right) and Arab-Amer­i­can Mo Amer. If you love heck­ling (or be­ing heck­led) it’s got to be live. Laugh­ter Fac­tory’s three in­ter­na­tional co­me­di­ans this month are Cana­dian Peter White, Bri­tish-Nige­rian Fun­mbi Omo­tayo and Aussie Damian Clark, on Fe­bru­ary 9 and 10 at Möven­pick JBR at 9pm; and Fe­bru­ary 16 at Grand Mil­len­nium Bar­sha Heights at 9pm.
