Hi my name is Nour, it’s an Arab word that means Vote Hillary, and this is my website thanks for stopping by. Here’s a little bit about me, my family is all doctors but I am not. I was born in Jordan, and now I live in Toronto. I was featured on CBC News, FLARE Magazine and Reader’s Digest 50 Comedians to watch, but you already knew that. I moved to Canada to study finance at McGill. I graduated with a BCom and worked in that for a while but now I am a professional comedian and writer. I am a Raptors fan and I love Taylor Swift and I think that true and real friends don’t invite you to their weddings.
What can I tell you about my comedy that would impress my family? Nothing really. But I did record a half hour special with Comedy Central Arabia in 2018. I was a staff writer on two seasons of This Hour has 22 Minutes and I also wrote for The Beaverton on the Comedy Network. I currently write on some other shows that are in development and can’t tell you much about but maybe one day I will! (Also you can hire me to write on your show too).
The Just for Laughs festival in Montreal asked me to perform there in 2017 and 2018 for the Kevin Hart LOL Network and Tiffany Haddish Gala.
I love performing on CBC’s The Debaters I’ve been on the show lots of times and I’ve lost count.
One time I opened for Maria Bamford and it was amazing. Another time for Sasheer Zamata. And also Jackie Kashian. Wendy Liebman is one the best. Matteo Lane as well, and Theo Von, and Josh Gondelman is a pure delight, Eliza Skinner too and fellow Canadian K. Trevor Wilson.

“Nour Hadidi, who is quickly emerging as one of the freshest stand-ups on the local scene. Her jokes about being from Jordan, visiting Cleveland and how her physician father introduces her and her medical school graduate sister were all specific, sharp and delivered with impeccable timing.” – Now Magazine (Glenn Sumi)
“In addition to her sharply written material, Hadidi stretched beyond her nerdy persona to do some crowd work about being robbed with effortless confidence and a few quick, on-the-spot quips.” – Exclaim Magazine (Juliana Romanyk)
“There was a woman from Jordan who talked about being Muslim and was very funny named Nour Hadidi and she was hilarious” – Jackie Kashian on The Jackie and Laurie Show (Episode 11)
Nour Hadidi did some racially slanted observational material that was as funny as it was polished. Her bit about her phone autocorrecting her name to “Noir Hasidic” was clean, sharp, and performed with an engagingly calculated delivery.” – Exclaim Magazine (Juliana Romanyk)
“Nour Hadidi is an impressive combo of funny, smart and sassy. Oh so sassy!” – CBC’s Marivel Taruc
