Higher Levity @ Higher Gravity (Open Mic)

For over a year Bombs Away! Comedy and Higher Gravity have brought high caliber open-mics and showcases to the heart of Northside. Every once in a while we have the chance to bring a can't miss headliner to our intimate comedy setting. On February 18th, at 9pm, we are proud to present Sammy Obeid!

* This is a ticketed event, Higher Gravity will be closed to the public at 9pm*
*Only 25 Tickets available, we will have limited tickets available at the door*
*Drink Specials and Draught Specials from Taft's Brewing Company*


Lebanese-Syrian-Palestinian-Italian American (try saying it really fast) Sammy knows a lot about mixin’ it up. After double majoring in Business and Math at UC Berkeley -- which is why he does comedy now -- Obeid blends his college experience with his love for being the life of the party, breaking down the latest trending topics into woke jokes that make you laugh your abs into a six pack while simultaneously getting smarter. Voted "Fastest Rising Star” in Campus Activities Magazine, Sammy has appeared on NBC's America's Got Talent, Last Comic Standing, TBS’s Conan, and often reminds strangers that he was the first comedian to ever tell jokes on the Food Network (sorry Rachel Ray). In 2013, he may have even impressed his parents by setting a world record of performing comedy 1,001 consecutive nights, with his story featured in Time Magazine and The New York Times. Also, he’s running for President in 2036, so mark your calendar!
