Find out what’s happening in the UAE this week.
Comedy gets cut-throat at Abu Dhabi-based club Yalla Laughs’ Beat the Camel show on August 14. The interactive contest will see 12 comedians perform on the stage for a maximum of five minutes. The audience are given three large camel cards that go up if the performers’ punchlines don’t knock their socks off. The comedian that manages to crack the joke that break the camel’s back and stay the full five minutes on stage makes it to the next round. Show starts at 8pm at Le Meridien Abu Dhabi; entry is free.
Stand-up comedian and Hollywood actor Mike Epps is set to create an uproar (the funny kind) at Al Raha Beach Theatre on August 18. The actor known for his humorous roles in films like Next Friday and The Hangover will perform as part of Abu Dhabi Summer Season, drawing richly from pop culture and current events. Tickets from Dh145 at platinumlist.net.
