Tissa Hami grew up in a traditional Iranian family in a predominantly white suburb of Boston. In March 2010, the San Francisco Chronicle named Tissa one of the Top 11 female comedians in the country. Her unique act and fresh perspective on life as an Iranian-American woman leave audiences in shock and awe. From Islamic fundamentalists to white liberals to good old-fashioned racists, no one is safe from her sharp wit. Tissa has appeared on The View, PBS, BBC, Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Boston Globe and other major media.
