Hamad has been spreading laughter in and around Doha since 2011, and is much loved in the Qatar community among citizens and expats alike. His charismatic personality allows him to speak his mind, which is probably what draws most people to him. He is genuine and authentic, and much loved for his sense of humour.
He is Doha's very own stand-up comedian, MC, entrepreneur, thinker, storyteller, brand ambassador, ultimate family guy, football hooligan (in his own words) and an artist all around. He hasn't looked back since he became a comedian in 2011. He's shared the stage with comedians like Trevor Noah, Gabriel Iglesias, Maz Jobrani, Nemr, Omid Djalili, and making more people laugh at his side-splitting stories and comic routines. He's even done some writing that he hopes one day that he'll be able to turn into a book.
Hamad co-hosts I Love Qatar's famous show 'QTips' with Mr. Q - Khalifa, and is well known as 'The Qatari Guy'. Through the show, Hamad and Khalifa talk about Qatar's culture and its heritage.
