Stories with my Muslim Mom podcast host Ali sultan saw his first stand up comedian when he moved to America from Yemen at the age of 15. He grew the desire to go on stage but first he needed to learn English. First year he made local history by being the first to win both Acme’s Funniest Person along with House of Comedy’s Funniest Person contest.

Ali began his comedy adventure to become the first professional Yemeni American comedian to be featured on Television when Kevin Hart hand picked him to perform on Comedy Central’s Hart of The City. In 2018 he filmed two specials one for Epix’s Unprotected Sets and Comedy Central Arabia Presents. 

A regular performer at Acme, New York Arab American Fest, and the winner of 2018 Best of The Midwest contest at Gilda’s Laugh Fest! Named "Top 5 comedian to watch" by Growler magazine, Best Local Comic by Minneapolis City Pages, one of 15 Arab American’s to steal the spotlight by ArabAmerica.com and featured by tpt PBS and Funny or Die for his sketch work and created the critically acclaimed People of Comedy show.
