Announcing Maysoon Zayid!
An actress, professional standup comedian, and writer, Zayid jokes about her family, global culture, and her life with cerebral palsy. Her recent TEDTalks video was a viral sensation with over 4 million views of her powerful message about living rather than suffering with a disability. She co-founded the New York Arab-American Comedy Festival, now in its 10th year. Several months of the year, you will find Zayid in the Palestinian Territories running workshops for disabled and orphaned kids in refugee camps, using art to help them deal with trauma. And yes —if you’re an Adam Sandler fan, you’ll recognize Zayid as the woman behind the beauty-shop counter in You Don’t Mess With the Zohan.
