Gad Elmaleh

Hailing from Casablanca, Morocco, Gad is arguably the biggest and most loved comedic star in France.

He made history as the first act to sell out the prestigious Olympia (Paris’ Carnegie Hall) for seven consecutive weeks, before performing for another seven sold out weeks at Palais des Sport.

Not content, he decided to challenge himself with a move to the U.S. His new show Oh My Gad brings his signature observational style and unique perspective of his new life in America to a whole new audience.

In 2015, Gad sold out more than 50 nights during a residency at Joe’s Pub in New York, leading to a multi-city US tour which culminated in a sold-out show at Carnegie Hall in February 2017.

The Oh My Gad standup special will premiere on Netflix in 2018.

He has made guest appearances on CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, Comedy Central’s The Daily Show and Nightly Show, and was featured on Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. He has also been heard on radio shows like NPR’s This American Life, PRI's The World and WNYC's Brian Lehrer.
