Zahra Noorbakhsh Biography

Zahra Noorbakhsh is a Feminist Muslim, Iranian-American comedian and cohost of the award-winning podcast, #GoodMuslimBadMuslim. The podcast was listed as a “must listen,” by Oprah Magazine and Zahra was invited to the White House by the Obama Administration to record an episode. She is a resident Senior Fellow with the Pop Culture Collaborative on comedy for social impact and published the report “Funny is Funny” which has been hailed as the farm-to-table field guide on humor. The theatrical world premiere of her standup comedy special, “On Behalf of All Muslims,” presented by Golden Thread Productions, drew a record-breaking audience of 700 people to Brava’s Theater for Women in the Arts.

Noorbakhsh’s performances continue to be intergenerational and intercultural crowd favorites. An excerpt of her one-person show, “Hijab and Hammerpants,” made its debut to 3,000 people at the Paramount Theater, for WNYC’s live broadcast of Snap Judgment, her one-person show, “All Atheists are Muslim,” originally directed by CNN’s W. Kamau Bell, was dubbed a highlight of the International New York City Fringe Theater Festival by the New Yorker.

She continues to write, perform, and speak on humor. Her essay, “Coming Out As Bisexual When You’re Muslim and Married,” reached 80 million people. Reza Aslan says “always insightful, always subversive…Zahra’s comedic romps disrupt an outdated narrative.” Noorbakhsh’s writing is featured in the NY Times and on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross.

Noorbakhsh is available in partnership with Collective Speakers.
