Comedian Sammy Obeid Performs for FREE

Sauk Valley Community College hopes the community can get a good laugh with comedian Sammy Obeid during his free performance Thursday, March 20 at 7 p.m. in Mathis Theatre.

Obeid is an entertainer that is considered the “life of the party.” His approach to comedy is unique as he discusses social trends in a critical yet hilarious way. Many say his style is “intelligent and inspiring.”

He has recently appeared on Conan O’Brien, America’s Got Talent and The Food Network. Obeid has also been privileged to work with Robin Williams, Russell Peters and Dana Carvey and also has his own claim to fame as the world recorder holder for performing comedy 1,001 nights in a row.

For more information on this free performance, contact Ana Salgado, SVCC student activities coordinator, at 815-835-6432. The show is rated PG-13 and may not be appropriate for all ages.
