Multihypenate Ramy Youssef will return to HBO for a new stand-up comedy special titled Ramy Youssef: More Feelings. Youssef will tape the special in front of a live audience at White Eagle Hall in Jersey City, New Jersey on February 2 and 3 for a March debut on the cabler.
Youssef signed for his first special for HBO, Ramy Youssef: Feelings, almost exactly four years ago. Since then, he’s fronted Hulu’s Peabody Award-winning comedy series, Ramy, which he created, produces, directs and stars in. Youssef received a Golden Globe in 2020 for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy for his work in it.

The multihypenate made his feature debut last year in Yorgos Lanthimos’ critically-acclaimed Poor Things opposite Emma Stone, which has been nominated for 11 Academy Awards, including Best Motion Picture.
The special will be produced by Youssef’s Cairo Cowboy outfit and A24; written, performed and executive produced by Youssef, directed and executive produced by Christopher Storer, executive produced by A24 and Tyson Binder. It will debut on HBO and stream on Max.
Youssef founded his production company, Cairo Cowboy, with a mission to develop original film and television content centered on important narratives, and serve as an incubator of emerging Muslim talent. Cairo Cowboy is currently in production on the animated series, #1 Happy Family USA, which was ordered for two seasons under the company’s first-look deal with Amazon.
