Muslim American Comedian

Arif Choudhury is a professional storyteller, filmmaker, theater artist, and stand-up comic.  He is currently working on a documentary film about folk storytellers in a remote village in China and just completed a short film entitled “Coloring”.

Choudhury performs “More in Common than You Think,” his one-person program of stories for schools, libraries, conferences, and festivals around the country and abroad.  He tells humorous stories of growing up in one of the few Bangladeshi-Muslim immigrant families in Chicago.  Focusing on issues of ethnic and religious identity, assimilation, multiculturalism, and diversity, his stories poke fun at how we think of one another.

Choudhury also tours the country in “More Alike than Not: Stories from Three Americans—Catholic, Jewish, and Muslim.” He recently recorded a CD of stories entitled, “Where Are You From? And Other Difficult Questions” and has written his first children’s book “The Only Brown-Skinned Boy in the Neighborhood.”
