Ahmed Muhammad Helmy Awwad (Arabic: أحمد محمد حلمي عواد‎) is an Egyptian comedian and drama actor.[citation needed] He is married to the Egyptian actress Mona Zaki and they have a daughter named Lilly born in 2003.


Helmy was born in Benha, Egypt. He graduated from the Higher institute of Dramatic Arts in Egypt, from the decoration department[when?]. Ahmed also graduated of the Academy of Arts, High Institute for Theatre Art in 1993.[citation needed]

As an actor and performer, Helmy is notable for his fast-thinking and witty comedy.[citation needed] His career in mainstream Egyptian film began when director Sherif Arafa spotted him on the children's program Leib Eyal (Kids' Play) on the Egyptian Satellite Broadcast[citation needed].

In that film Helmy made his first big screen appearance, co-starring alongside Alaa Waley El Din. Thereafter, he quickly made a jump to leading roles in films such as Omar 2000, El Nazer (The Headmaster), El Selem We Al Tho'ban (Snakes And Ladders).[1]

In 2007, Helmy topped the Egyptian comedian market in number of audience and revenue, mostly due to the success of his movie Keda Reda.
