Feraz Ozel
Friday, January 27

Afghani-Pakistani comedian Feraz Ozel provides crowds with a diverse and energetic brand of insightful comedy. Throughout his youth as the loveable fat kid, Feraz learned to see the humor in everything... Even if he did have the biggest breasts in class and could only see his toes on a good day. Over the years he lost the weight but kept the funny “guy next door” charm. Feraz was recently seen providing comedic relief in The Doctors on CBS, and is a featured act on Ahmed Ahmed's Next Generation of Evil comedy tour. He won the Funzine Comedy Competition in Budapest, Hungary and was a finalist in San Diego's Funniest Person Competition.
