Emil Wakim is a stand-up comedian newly based in Brooklyn by way of Bloomington, Indiana. He can be seen charming audiences with his comedy that was once described by his foreign parents as, “We don’t get it.”
A lovable combination of self-deprecation and social consciousness, Emil has performed at the Limestone Comedy Festival, 208 Fest, the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, and was selected as part of the “Best of the Fest” at the 10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival. He has opened for Kyle Kinane, Todd Glass, Moshe Kasher, and regularly for Nikki Glaser.
Emil wrote a joke for the Comedy Central Roast about Robert De Niro that made him laugh, so he will be riding that high until De Niro has him whacked. You can also see Emil featured as the main subject of an episode of Vice TV’s new show, ‘Hunters’ which focuses on finding the next breakout comedy star.”
