Building Stand Up in Qatar

Since I moved to Doha 6 months ago, I've been trying to build up the comedy scene here. With not much appetite for comedy, we set up Doha Tweetups and made every second event a comedy event. Slowly, we've had new people trying comedy out, and the Tweetup has been growing. Here is a blog post from our new site that I recently did: http://dohatweetups.com/
I’m sure most of you have heard by now, but for the benefit of those that have not, here is some good news: three of the five finalists in the TedxDoha stand up comedy event are from Doha Tweetups!
Yes, me (Bilal), Hanadi and Fahad were all selected to perform again with Ahmed Ahmed – the winner after that event will then go on tour with him to at least 10 countries in the Middle East.
The other two finalists are great guys who’ve heard tons about Doha Tweetups and will be joining us at future events.
Keep on tweeting & be sure to invite all your friends and colleagues to future tweetups. We hope to find a bigger, better venue for future events, so watch this space:-)
