Ramy Youssef is an Egyptian-American comedian, actor and director.  Youssef most recently won a Golden Globe Award on behalf of his Hulu show Ramy in the category of ‘Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.’ Ramy was also nominated for a Gotham Award for ‘Best Breakthrough Series – Short Format.’ Additionally, Youssef was nominated for a Writers Guild Award in the category of ‘Comedy/Variety Specials’ on behalf of his one-hour comedy special Ramy Youssef: Feelings.

 

Youssef recently signed an overall deal with A24 and is working on creating and developing projects with Apple and Netflix. The first show for Apple will star Ramy series regular Stephen Way in a story illustrating the perspective and experience of a disabled person and their family in a real way.
