Straight out of Israel, Ori Amir is a neuroscientist who studied the neural basis of a sense of humor (for real yo). He also does stand-up comedy about science, Americans, American women, and being a creepy lovable foreigner in America (or as he likes to think of it -- conducting scientific experiments on audiences). You´ve seen him on Comedy Central and CMT (assuming you watch those channels 24-7 on a split screen, without blinking, as, Ori´s been told, all Americans do). Ori´s act is very silly and very smart at the same time. He loves being a foreigner because he can really express his wacky personality and people assume it must be normal in his culture. WEBSITE | |
