Revisit Maysoon Zayid’s hilarious Abu Dhabi Debut.

Were you there? On April Fools Day (no joke!) relive every moment of laughter and Maysoon’s exhilarating comedy.

For one time only, revisit this highlight from The Arts Center’s archives, filmed in The Red Theater to a sold-out crowd on September 14, 2017. Bridge the social distance, join the community online.

With grace and wit, the hilarious comedian, actor/writer, and disability advocate jokes about her family, global culture, and her life with cerebral palsy.

Maysoon herself will join the event with a live-streamed post-show Q&A, moderated by Alana Barraj, who oversaw this performance in her former role as Senior Producer from The Arts Center.
