Stand-up comic Habib Siam presents Survivor’s Remorse – a 75-min special about home, identity, and spending a little too much time in the woods.
Habib revisits the recent events in Lebanon, the accompanying sense of loss, and the difficulties trying to exist in two worlds, “here” and “there”, whose realities stand in such contrast. This is a show where grief meets laughter.
Survivor’s Remorse is in partnership with the McGill Alumni Association.
Born on Christmas day, a stone’s throw from Bethlehem, Habib thought he was the second coming and almost entered priesthood. Several countries and questionable life decisions later, he completed a Ph.D. at McGill University only to start doing stand-up comedy.
Habib has headlined clubs internationally and performed in multiple languages.
He currently splits his time between Canada and Lebanon, and may (definitely) own more shoes than anyone you know.
