Sammy K. Obeid is an American writer and stand-up comedian. He has released one comedy album, Get Funny or Die Tryin. His comedy is known for its "analytic style full of wordplay, clever misdirection and ethnic humor riffing on his Middle Eastern roots (he’s Lebanese-American)".[1]

Obeid has been featured on America's Got Talent, Conan and Last Comic Standing. He is perhaps best known for performing 1,000 nights of comedy in a row, a current world record.[2]
