not very funny!! he had his moments but i would have been disappointed had i paid full price (thank you goldstar for providing the discounts). a lot of breaks and downtime in the performance. with him trying to get the audience involved that took a lot of time out of the act and seemed to be pretty dry. the audience involvement part only works if there is some serious heckling going on and that wasn't the case... most of his humour was ethnic oriented which again had its moments but the act was lacking in true comic genius. maybe he was having an off day but i would not see him again...

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
