Golden Globe-winning Actor, Director, and Comedian
The cool, calm, and collected charisma of Ramy Youssef doesn’t feel like he’s about to send you into a laugh-out-loud fit, but he does every time.
The cool, calm, and collected charisma of Ramy Youssef doesn’t feel like he’s about to send you into a laugh-out-loud fit, but he does every time. Best known for his Golden Globe-winning role on the Hulu comedy series Ramy, Youssef is an incredibly sharp-witted and relatable voice for millennials and boomers alike. The show was renewed for a second season. The second season expands past the pursuit of moral righteousness into an insightful and inclusive show worthy of all the critical acclaim.
Youssef’s 2019 HBO special Feelings dove into the strange questions he gets asked because he’s Muslim and the new etiquette for liking pictures on social media. He delivers an incredibly thoughtful and lighthearted set while covering the uncomfortable truths about perception in America.
Ramy Youssef is a Golden Globe-winning Egyptian-American creator, actor, producer, director, and comedian who brings his unique voice and perspective to his storytelling.
Most recently, the Television Academy nominated Youssef for two 2020 Emmy Awards in the categories of “Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series” and “Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series” on behalf of his Hulu show “Ramy.” In addition to Ramy’s nominations, two-time Academy Award®-winner Mahershala Ali, who joined the cast for season 2, was nominated for his performance in the category of “Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.” Youssef won the 2020 Golden Globe Award on behalf of “Ramy” in the category of ‘Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.’ “Ramy” also won a 2020 Peabody Award and was nominated for a 2019 Gotham Award for ‘Best Breakthrough Series – Short Format’ and a 2020 Writers Guild Award in the category of ‘Comedy/Variety Specials’ on behalf of his one-hour comedy special “Ramy Youssef: Feelings.”
Youssef created, produced, directs, and stars in the hit show “Ramy,” inspired by his own experiences. “Ramy” centers around a first-generation Egyptian-American Muslim on a spiritual journey in his politically divided New Jersey neighborhood. Hulu recently picked up the third season of the show. Ramy’s first comedy special, “Ramy Youssef: Feelings,” produced by A24, premiered on HBO last Summer.
Youssef recently signed a first look deal with A24 and is working on creating and developing projects with Apple and Netflix. The first show for Apple will star “Ramy’s” series regular Stephen Way in a story illustrating the perspective and experience of a disabled person navigating life in a disabled community. Youssef will executive produce both this series and an untitled show currently in production with Netflix.
Ramy is a graduate of William Esper Studio and Rutherford High School in New Jersey.
