About the Event

Join comedian Alyssa Al-Dookhi (Netflix, CNN) for a two-hour workshop.  Alyssa will guide you through where humor comes from and how to inject it into your work and daily life. You will be introduced to the comedic parts of speech, joke structures, and the rhythm of comedy. By the end of the session, you will leave with your very own jokes that you've written, workshopped, and can take out into the world

Meet The Instructor


Alyssa Al-Dookhi (they/them) is an Arab American comedian, writer, and game show host living in Philadelphia. 

Alyssa grew up in the sweltering luxury of Kuwait and attended college in the frozen tundra of Kalamazoo, Michigan. However, it is in the City of Brotherly Love that Alyssa found comedy, honed their sharp wit, and cultivated their dominating, energetic style. 

They are currently the lead scriptwriter for First Person Arts and a content creator for Abortion Access Front. Alyssa co-hosts the podcast “Make Up Or Break Up” on Radiokismet. You can also catch them showing their passion for public television as membership talent on WHYY. Alyssa was a contestant in the Netflix karaoke competition show ‘Sing On!’ a warm-up comic for season 5 of Netflix's 'Queer Eye.’
