We Ain't Terrorists

We Aint Terrorists is a live stand-up comedy show inspired by the real-life experiences of comedians Dave Merheje and Ali Hassan. It’s a fresh, truthful, passionate and hilarious collaboration by these two established Canadian entertainers.
Dave and Ali (Lebanese-Christian and Pakistani-Muslim, respectively) explore the stereotypes, misconceptions, and misunderstandings that they regularly face, inside and outside of their own communities. We Aint Terrorists is also a socially poignant show that strives to counter the tide of prejudice that exists in this country and globally…all the while spreading the love, relatability and laughter!

Dave Merheje is considered to be one of the most original stand-up comedians on the comedy scene today. He has won the Just For Laughs ‘Homegrown Comic Competition’ and NOW Magazine's ‘Best of Toronto Award’ for Best Male Stand-up, and been nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award for both Best Stand-up and Best Taped Live Performance. Now based in New York City, Dave has taken his act across the world including to Australia and China in 2017.
He was a regular contributor on MTV Live and recently joined the cast of Mr. D on CBC as a new teacher. Dave also just released his own live comedy special Bad Grammar, Good Friend. www.davemerheje.com

Ali Hassan is a stand-up comedian, actor and writer. He honed his solo show, Muslim Interrupted, on a 26-date run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2016 and since that time has been touring the show across Canada. He has performed 20 shows in 16 Canadian cities, including at the Just for Laughs festival in Montreal. This show has become as much about entertaining audiences as it is about informing them - something especially pertinent opposite the current global political and social climate. Ali is also the host of Laugh Out Loud (CBC Radio One, SiriusXM), and a frequent guest-host of q, the leading arts and culture program in Canada, and the host of CBC’s battle of the books, Canada Reads. He also starred in 3 episodes of this season’s Designated Survivor on ABC and was a recurring character on FXX’s Man Seeking Woman, PBS Kids’ Odd Squad and CTV’s Cardinal. www.standupali.com
