Friday | November 3 | Ant Hall
Planet Ant Theatre presents
LIVE at the Ant Hall for ONE-NIGHT ONLY!!
“Where are you from?” is a question that is incredibly annoying to many Americans – especially to this comedy trio. AK, Sabeen, and Sharup are Muslim-American comedians from three different immigrant backgrounds that will forever struggle with their own identity issues. Their renowned stand-up comedy delves into the hilarious journey to define their own unique American identity while feeling outcasted at times by the world around them.

Sabeen Sadiq is a comedian and writer based in Chicago. Living in San Francisco for a brief period, she coproduced several shows and performed all over the Bay area at several popular venues including Cobbs Comedy Club and the San Jose Improv. She’s performed at the Muslim Funny Fest in NYC and at the San Francisco Desi Comedy Fest. Currently she co-produces the comedy show Don’t Kid Yourself and resides in Chicago performing stand-up all over the city. You can catch her at Laugh Factory, Zanies, and other popular venues.
AK Agunbiade is a comedian, storyteller, and writer that was born in the motherland, but grew up in the awe-inspiring cornfields of Indiana. His foray into comedy was accidental in nature. He told a funny story once on stage at a college comedy show and people laughed. The rest is history. You can usually find him performing at various venues in Chi-town and different colleges nationwide. When not performing, he is either sleeping, eating, or writing....But most likely he’s eating.
Sharup Karim is a South Asian American standup comedian who was born in a village in Bangladesh, but raised in Oklahoma City, OK. As a satirist of all topics ranging from being racially ambiguous to somehow surviving in America, Sharup's comedy primarily integrates his experiences as a western minority with observational humor and witticism. Sharup has performed at The Second City, Zanies, The Laugh Factory, The Lincoln Lodge, and has been featured at various comedy festivals, including LaughFest Grand Rapids, the Milwaukee Comedy Festival, the Flyover Comedy Festival in St. Louis, the Solocom Festival in New York City, and the world renowned Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland.
