Raised in the West Bank of Palestine and Orange County, California (ask him which was more oppressive), Ramsey Badawi is standup comedian, podcaster, and writer.

Before comedy, he was a California State legislative policy aide, political campaign manager, and pop-punk super star.

So far Ramsey’s done some cool stuff. He’s the creator and host of the podcast and live show Now Is Not the Time. He’s also a regular on the Mean Boys Podcast.  He was a finalist for Politicon’s Comic of the Year. He’s written for Comedy Central and been featured on Fox, Variety, Amazon Prime, and KPCC.
