Lebanese-Palestnian-Syrian-Italian American born in Oakland California Sammy Obeid is best known for setting a world record of performing stand up comedy 1,001 nights in a row. The nearly 3 year long streak, which ended with an appearance on TBS’s Conan, was chronicled by both The New York Times and Time Magazine. Recently a semifinalist on NBC's Last Comic Standing, Sammy was invited to be one of the first ever comedians to perform on the Van’s Warped Tour in 2015, following an extensive college tour, in which he was voted "Fastest Rising Star” of 2014 in Campus Activities Magazine.
