Maz Jobrani's Biography
Maziar "Maz" Jobrani is an Iranian-born American comedian who is part of the "Axis of Evil" comedy group. The group appeared on a comedy special on Comedy Central. Jobrani has also appeared in numerous films, television shows, on radio and in comedy clubs. His filmography includes roles in The Interpreter, Friday After Next, and Dragonfly.

Born in Tehran, Iran, Jobrani's parents moved to California and he grew up in Tiburon in the San Francisco Bay area. He attended Redwood High School in Larkspur. Jobrani did not take the conventional route to performing comedy. He studied political science and Italian at UC Berkeley, where he received a B.A. degree. In fact, Jobrani was enrolled in a Ph.D. program at UCLA when he decided to pursue his childhood dream of acting and performing comedy. He has since made appearances on shows like The Colbert Report, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Talkshow with Spike Feresten and regularly performs at top comedy clubs (in CA and NY) such as The Comedy Store. He also made an appearance as a dental patient on an episode of Still Standing, as well as appearing shortly in the beginning of the pilot episodes of Better Off Ted. Jobrani is currently with the Axis of Evil Comedy Tour including Ahmed Ahmed and Aron Kader.

Jobrani's jokes focus on racism, mainly against Iranians and Arabs, while also poking fun at his own ethnic group. Jobrani is married to an Indian-American woman and they currently reside in California.
