Jake GyllenhaalChampions of Middle Eastern culture, Ronnie Khalil and Ryan Shrime are set to reinvent last year’s highly successful Middle Eastern Comedy Festival, to be held in Los Angeles, Oct. 4-7, 2010. The event will showcase stand-up comics of Middle Eastern descent, including Arabs, Israelis, Persians, Afghanis, and more, as well as stage a variety of comedy sketches.

The festival will kick off at Hollywood’s Laugh Factory with a “brown carpet gala,” followed by three nights of entertainment at the Acme Comedy Theatre. At the closing awards ceremony, Khalil and Shrime will honor Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time star Jake Gyllenhaal. Also new to this year’s ceremony will be the Middle East Jackass Awards.

    I’am middle eastern myself and I have always found these guys to be highly generic and at times extremely annoying. Khalil is the only half descent comic in the whole festival (after all he let me be the opening act to a show he did in my university)no seriously besides him I personally wouldn’t even bother
