The show was a great success and the crowd couldn’t stop laughing.

The comedy scene in Lebanon is flourishing but it’s still in its beginnings. This show was definitely a step forward in the advancement of this field especially with the presence of many talents in Lebanon.

In addition to being a standup comedian, Anthony Salameh is part of the morning show crew on Virgin Radio Lebanon where he, and co-host Frankie Walters, give listeners a laugh to kick off their day.
