AZHAR USMAN Standup Comedian. Actor-Producer. Artist-Activist.



Renowned Comedian Activist to keynote April 9 conference on

"Non-Violence in the Islamic Traditions"



St. Paul, Minn. -- Internationally-known comedian, artist and activist Azhar Usman will keynote the "Ways of Peace II: Non-Violence in the Islamic Traditions" conference on April 9, in place of Congressman Keith Ellison, who was forced to cancel as a result of Congressional duties. Friends for a Non-Violent World and University of St. Thomas are presenting the conference in the auditorium of the university's O'Shaugnessy Educational Center, 9:30-6:30. Usman's keynote is 1:30-2:30. It is co-sponsored by over 20 Twin Cities organizations and dozens of individuals.


Azhar Usman has a lot to say about the political climate today, reaching people with humor, insight and compassion. He is the co-founder of the highly successful "Allah Made Me Funny-Official Muslim Comedy Tour." He produced a documentary-concert film based on the Tour, which was released in select U.S. movie theaters in late 2008, quickly becoming one of the top-20 highest grossing standup comedy concert films of all time. Formally trained as an attorney, Azhar has been touring as a full-time standup comedian since 2004 and has performed in over twenty countries, on five continents, in multiple languages (English, Urdu/Hindi, Spanish, and Arabic).
