Ramy Youssef in Conversation

Join Ramy Youssef, creator and star of the Emmy-nominated Ramy, for a conversation.

Ramy is the compulsively watchable, Emmy-nominated, Golden Globe-winning comedy from Ramy Youssef. The semi-autobiographical series has a New Jersey-ite, millennial Egyptian American at its center: a guy who is struggling with his faith and identity in ways that are both comic and cringeworthy. Hailed by the New York Times as “quietly revolutionary,” Ramy is one of the rare on-screen depictions of the contemporary Muslim experience. Its reflections on gender, sex, friendship, and community are at once poignant and provocative. Join Youssef and Maytha Alhassen, a writer on both Ramy and The Young Turks, for a conversation about his creative vision and the future of comedy.
