Hi I’m Nour 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, True Dating Stories on CBC Gem and ABROAD on Omni. 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 for the Kevin Hart LOL Network and Tiffany Haddish Gala. Also in 2020 I recorded a set for the Stand up show with Jon Dore with them. I was in episode 7 of Season 3 of FX’s super cool show What we do in the Shadows!! It was a dream and I honestly didn’t want to leave the set after I wrapped my scenes.
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 Hasan Minhaj in front of 7,000 people and it was amazing. Also Maria Bamford and Sasheer Zamata. Jackie Kashian too. 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.
Anyways listen I run a biweekly mic called Open Michelle for women and non-binary performers at tallboys as well as a monthly show at Toronto’s famous Comedy Bar. It’s called Nour Hadidi & Friends and it sells out everytime. Check out www.comedybar.ca for tickets. Thank you, and please know that you are loved and that I for one am very grateful you are on this earth unless you bullied me in high school in which case I don’t care for you very much.
