Nazareth shares how he met his wife, how his faith has shaped his career, and where he thinks the live entertainment industry is going post pandemic
Nazareth, originally from the Holy Land, has been honing his talents as a comedian for 25 years. Prior to moving to the United States to attend college at the University of Toledo Ohio, he uprooted from Kuwait with nothing other than a passion to make the most of the life he has been given. His passion for comedy ignited when he asked himself one day, “What do I want to do in life that if I never get paid for it, I’d still do it to the best of my ability?” Making people laugh was the only thing that came to mind. The next day, he signed up at a California comedy club for open-mike night. He took the stage before a crowd of nine drunks. Nazareth recalls them laughing so hard that one of them fell off their chair. From the moment that he discovered his talent for bringing comic relief, his desire to do it for a living was without question.
Nazareth has performed on CBS, NBC, and ABC, as well as in numerous stadiums and sports arena across the USA, such as The Grand Ole Opry, The Pepsi Arena, Notre Dame University’s Concert Hall.
