I had a fun time performing at Softrams launch event this month. The company moved into a new office in Baltimore and held an event for their employees.
After the leadership team did their speeches, I hosted an ice breaker (many employees work remote so this was their first time meeting) and then did stand-up. We all had a great time.
I just had one of the most amazing experiences performing. Hwaida Hassanein reached out to me to do perform at her upcoming Birthday party. As is standard, I sent a list of suggestions on what things she should do on her end to help make the event better. Normally a client is usually just able to do a few things at most. But Hwaida and her family went all out!
Hwaida Hassanein’s basement prepped to look like a Comedy Club
There was brick wallpaper all over, the chairs all faced the front, the room was dark except for a lit stage, and best of all, an elevated stage her husband and son made for the show. When I walked in and saw the setup, I knew the show would go well.
Here’s a pic from my performance that night:
And here’s a testimonial from Hwaida about my performance:
“Shahryar was amazing at our “Comedy Club” birthday party at our home. We had around 75 guests and everyone couldn’t stop laughing. His comedy revolved around real-life scenarios and was relatable to all! My guests thanked me for days after the event, for a wonderful evening of comedy, laughter, and fun! I would recommend Shahryar to anyone who is looking to do something different than the regular style party. He keeps his audience engaged and feeds over the energy. Will definitely use him again.”

I have a lot of repeat clients, but because of the effort this family put into the setup, I especially am looking forward to working with them again.
