Comedian Mo Amer recently debuted his first stand up special, “The Vagabond” on Netflix, followed by appearances on Late Night with Stephen Colbert and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Named as one of Rolling Stone’s 10 Comedians You Need to Know, Amer’s humor consists of observational comedy, political satire, and race related material, heavily drawing on autobiographical elements, as well as his unique improvised, conversational style. He tells his unusual, circuitous lifestory, detailing how he managed to travel the world without a passport for years before finally becoming a U.S. citizen after two decades; had an American soldier pull a weapon on him (at a military show) in Iraq; and once had Bradley Cooper (unintentionally) rescue him in the Middle East.
