Support My Blog and the Comedians!


Starting tonight and every Saturday for the month of May, you can now support my blog and the comedians by snagging a ticket to their comedy show!

PLUS you can get $5 OFF too with CODE: "steals" (all lowercase)
After you select the date, click on the "Enter promo code" in the upper left-hand corner right above "General Admission".

Khalid Rahmaan (Conan) hosts a lineup of stand-up and musical comedians from Comedy Central, MTV, and late night TV every week live on Zoom!

About this Event

After purchasing a ticket, you'll receive an email receipt from Eventbrite that includes the Zoom showroom info. Thanks in advance for not sharing our super secret showroom info!
Khalid's Musical Comedy TING is a weekly mostly musical comedy show hosted by stand-up comedian/delusional Knicks fan/terrible driver Khalid Rahmaan (Conan) on Zoom. Each week, we bring you some of the very best in musical and stand-up comedy. Note: We do not censor our comedians and would not call this show "kid-friendly".
Your money will go directly to the people making this show, both in front of the screen and behind the screen. As you know, many comedians and event producers make their living by entertaining live audiences. Your donations are paying our performers for making you laugh, as they are without a regular source of income. This income will help them pay for the most basic level of living. Some of our performers are all set and have asked that the money goes to those who need it most, so know that only those needing an immediate income will receive it. Should you wish to tip your performers during or after the show, you can do that @Comedy-Ting on Venmo.
We're doing our best! Live comedy wasn't meant to be performed online for an audience in their tastefully decorated homes (we know how you do, playa). Know that our performers are trying to figure out how to connect on this new platform and we hope you'll be entertained! Of course tech issues will come up, but we're in great hands with our super producer Leif Enoksen. As with our live show, we ask that you do not record the show or redistribute in any way. We want this to be a safe space for our performers and a special event for our fans. Lineups are subject to change. Thank you for being here!
Khalid's Mostly Musical Comedy TING is produced by Khalid Rahmaan and Leif Enoksen.
Please email with any questions.
