They’re Going Places is a new Canadian comedy tour featuring prolific comedians Abbas Wahab, Moe Ismail, and Jesse Singh. They’re Going Places will tour across Canada starting November 4, 2022 in St John’s, Newfoundland before visiting over a dozen cities in Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario through to January 2023 – with more dates to be announced soon!
They’re Going Places will deliver a hilarious, action-packed comedy showcase featuring three rising stars in the Canadian comedy scene. Led by Sudanese comedian, actor, and podcaster Abbas Wahab, this tour will also star Egyptian comedian Moe Ismail, and Punjabi comedian Jesse Singh. They’re Going Places will offer audiences three distinct yet complementary voices in one highly entertaining show.
Abbas Wahab (@abbaswahab_) has been a staple of the Toronto comedy scene for nearly a decade. He recently released his comedy special and album Safe Black, is a regular on CBC’s The Debaters, and just returned from the 2022 Winnipeg Comedy Festival. Audiences will recognize his numerous TV appearances including Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, The Boys, Children Ruin Everything, and The Handmaid’s Tale. Abbas is also the creator and host of The Immigrant Section Podcast, a weekly comedy show showcasing Toronto’s rising ethnic talents. He has garnered a loyal online following of over 25k users on Instagram and 150k on TikTok, with his focus on story-telling and highlighting the immigrant experience.
Moe Ismail (@moemoeismail) is a Toronto-based performer and producer who has been touring across North America for over a decade. His comedic style has often been described by his loyal following as energetic, diverse, and most importantly, authentic. He recently released his debut stand up album Homeroom Habibi about his experiences as an Egyptian immigrant growing up in Canada, and becoming a school teacher. He has been featured on Just for Laughs, SiriusXM, MTV, and has shared the stage with Marc Maron, Colin Mochrie, Todd Glass, and The Sklar Brothers.
Jesse Singh (@thepunjabitimbit) realized from a very young age he can utilize humor as his way of getting through life. His realness and unbelievable, but very true, personal experiences on stage makes him not only hilarious but very relatable. He has performed in several cities across North America and has been featured on JFL42, was a semi-finalist in NYC’s 2019 Devil Cup Comedy Festival, and has produced two long-running independent comedy shows in the GTA.
