Muslim father, Jewish mother, an American born in Egypt—Tamer Kattan was born an outsider and that's where he stayed. Very quickly, Tamer became adept at being comfortable in the uncomfortable. Comedy became the weapon of this underdog, enabling him to deal with challenges ranging from school yard bullies to an abusive father. His diverse background has given Tamer a deep understanding of the human condition as well as a wealth of material to draw from.
