If you sit near the front know that you will be targeted for material towards the end of the show :)

Sitting near the front will make you a surefire target for the remainder of the show. He ends his show by using the audience for material.

Ahmed mentioned he was tired several times during the show, did not provide much of his own input, instead just went through the first row of people one by one asking people where they are from.

Maybe he is a better performer when not tired,...continued
