TV PRESENTER & ACTOR
In October last year, Netflix announced that its first ever local production in the Arab world would be a comedy stand-up special with TV star Adel performing on a Beirut stage. The resulting show, in which he delivered punchlines on kissing norms and colonoscopies, was badly received but his career is rocketing. His role in THE INSULT has earned him a Best Actor nomination in the Critics Awards and he will soon be seen starring in his first Egyptian feature, Marwan Hamed’s DIAMOND DUST. Social Stats: around 3.5 million followers on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter; 1.5 million views for his channels on YouTube.
