Dauood Muhammad Naimyar
Born with a foreign name in an American country (America), Dauood Muhammad Naimyar learned the value of assimilating at a very young age. Because of this, he tried his best to not be different but failed at every encounter. Once he embraced his eccentric point of view, he saw the humor all around him. Dauood’s comedic perspective is shaped by the duality of his constant need to fit in, and his relentless desire to be different. His search for being relatable yet controversial has brought audiences joy for seven years--and will probably continue until he finally figures out who he is. We hope he doesn’t, 'cause bills need to be paid.
Andrew Orolfo has been named one of the country’s "top knot" comedians by... don't even ask, just go with it. An established staple in San Francisco comedy, he has been featured in SF Sketchfest, Limestone Comedy Festival and Comedy Central Clusterfest. He can be heard on Sirius XM Radio and seen on The Late Late Show with James Corden. He currently headlines clubs and colleges across the country.
The list of performers includes Steve Byrne, Andrew Orolfo, PK, DJ Sandhu, hosted by, Mark Shaw with special guests from the San Francisco community. Join us for a special after party in the city! More details to come, so check back with us.

About Laugh for Lives:
An old saying goes, “Laughter is the best medicine” and we certainly believe that humor is a strong medicine for the mind and body. Laugh for Lives is a comedy show benefiting Asian American Donor Program (AADP). Our primary goal of the event is not only to provide a stellar line-up of comedians for an evening of much-needed laughs but to elevate the awareness of our mission, helping save lives of patients with leukemia, lymphoma and other blood diseases. The evening is designed to educate and encourage individuals between the ages of 18-44 years old, who are from ethnic minority communities to register as a potential bone marrow donor. Laugh For Lives is an AADP volunteer’s idea to help bring more attention about the need for donors to individuals from diverse communities.
