Update 2/19/21: Bassem Youssef’s shows on Friday, February 19, 2021 have been canceled due to the winter storm. However, the four shows on Saturday and Sunday are confirmed.

Houston Improv welcomes comedian, Bassem Youssef, for five socially distanced shows.

Youssef, dubbed the Jon Stewart of the Arab World, was the host of popular political satire TV show AlBernameg, which was the first of its kind in the Middle East.

Originally a five-minute show on YouTube, AlBernameg became the first online to TV conversion in the Middle East and the most watched show across the region with 30 million viewers every week.

Social Distancing & COVID-19

Businesses and organizations in Houston have opened under modified protocols, following guidelines administered by local health officials, the State of Texas and CDC. At this time, guidance from experts urges people to continue wearing face masks when in public spaces, practice social distancing of at least six feet, limit your touching of surfaces and frequently use hand sanitizer or soap and water to keep your hands clean.

Although vaccines have been approved and distribution has begun, supplies are still limited. Health officials have severely cautioned that it will take until late spring 2021 before the U.S. might be able to expect a level of herd immunity. In the meantime, masks are strongly advised to help curb the increasing spread of COVID-19 this winter.

Before heading out, take time to familiarize with your destination’s requirements or restrictions at this moment, and be sure to contact them ahead of time with any questions or concerns.


Tickets are available by table only. General admission tables for most shows are $50 for two people; $100 for four people; $150 for two people. Preferred tables range from $100 to $300, based on the number of people.
