One of our favorite new comedies last year was the show Ramy on Hulu. The brilliantly funny show is straight from the mind of comedian Ramy Youseff, who’s material openly jokes about his life as a Muslim American, and the stereotypes of his culture and religion. Youseff received notice from his prime-time television debut on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and within days the video had thousands of views. Shortly afterward, we were blessed with this standout show.
After the success of Ramy’s first season, Youseff brings back his brand of dry and personal humor in Ramy season 2 on May 29th.

What is Ramy About
Ramy follows Ramy Hassan (Youssef), a first-generation Egyptian American Muslim in New Jersey, as he struggles on his spiritual path and to find a balance between his more traditional culture and life as a Millennial American.
While a fictional series, the story frequently pulls from Youseff’s own life. The writer/creator didn’t shy from touching on many of his own experiences and personal explorations of religion and moral questioning. Much of his stand-up comedy is based on the culture clash of being a young Muslim American. In his writing, Youseff also doesn’t try to idealize the Muslim community. Instead, he tries to show the family and friends on the series as just like everyone else—human, messy, and complicated.
Ramy Youssef has appeared in Mr. Robot and See Dad Run. The series also stars May Calamawy (The Long Road Home), Dave Merheie (Mr. D), Mohammed Amer, Hiam Abbass, Laith Nakli (The Long Road Home, 24: Legacy), and Steve Way.
Ramy was created by Youssef in conjunction with Ari Katcher (The Carmichael Show), Ryan Welch, as well as producers Jerrod Carmichael (The Carmichael Show), A24’s Ravi Nandan (At Home with Amy Sedaris, I’m Sorry), and showrunner Bridget Bedard (Transparent).
