On February 2nd, stand-up comedian and entertainer Said Durrah (see: www.saidsworld.com) performed in front of a sold-out crowd in the IMAX theater at The Artisphere in Arlington, Virginia. The show was attended by a variegated crowd that ranged in ethnicity but all shared in their laughter at the jokes by Mike Ismael and Said Durrah.
Previously having headlined for comedians such as Azhar Usman and Russel Peters, Durrah’s headline performance displayed his multifaceted skills as a well rounded entertainer. Durrah displayed his range of ability in the show, providing a medley of impersonations and jokes that touched on everything from the impersonations he did for his sick niece in the hospital to celebrity impersonations to humor on timely current affairs issues.
Mike Ismael warmed up the crowd for Durrah’s headline performance with his warm style that went down easy like a cup of hearty vegetable soup.
A nice addition to the show was a high quality video that highlighted some of Durrah’s inspiration and abilities, although for his next show some laser lights, smoke and dancing ala Prince Naseem Hamed would add to the effect. Overall, the show was a hit and you can definitely look forward to hearing big things from Said Durrah in the future.
