With Carmen Chraim and Toby Arsalan

About this Event

It’s been a while! But CCB is open again, which means comedy is back! Comedians are crawling out of their little lockdown holes and carefully checking WHAT IS THE DEAL with all these post-quarantine shows!

This week, join Carmen Chraim and Toby Arsalan as they get back on stage and polish their jokes, old and new, dirty and clean, stories, bits and one-liners. It won’t all be comedy gold, but it will be all fun, all for a measly donation-based entry. Plus you get to enjoy and support local comedy again!

ABOUT THE COMICS

Born and raised in Lebanon, Carmen Chraim is a beloved comedian in the Berlin English comedy scene. She wins over crowds with her high energy presence and rapid-fire anecdotes. Thanks to her Middle Eastern background, passion for hummus, deep experience with corporate Germans and sarcastic political views, she’s often seen as an alternative Arab success story that hasn’t yet been discovered by the media. Together with Toby, every Monday Carmen hosts one of the oldest open mics in Berlin: Monday Mics at Kleinod, which will hopefully be back from break soon.

Toby Arsalan is a German-Pakistani stand-up comedian based in Berlin. Toby has toured four continents, featured on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle and opened for Todd Barry, Judah Friedlander, Godfrey and Tom Rhodes. Most weeks when the world isn’t in the grips of a deadly epidemic, you can catch Toby hosting Monday Night Mics and Joke Time, two of Berlin’s most popular open mics. He recently started “Tragedy + Time”, a YouTube show that gets one minute longer each episode, check it out!

Tickets are free. Donations will be collected after the show.
