Storytelling comes naturally to Majid Mubeen. His robust humor and thoughtful writing make his performances riveting. He can turn a simple story into a theatrical show. An award-winning comedian, Majid has been performing one-man comedy shows with eclectic energy for nearly a decade. With his tales, tall and otherwise, he hopes to touch people and make a difference in a very unique way.

Since the age of 13, Majid has been involved in Forensics - Speech and Debate - where he has competed consistently at the State level, winning the Michigan State Championship for Storytelling performance in 2012. After coming to the University of Pennsylvania, he has continued performing, while learning the comedy trade from performers across the East Coast. Last year, with the Wharton Passion Projects, he put together a one-man show. He is currently working on a longer one-man show series to be showcased online at the end of this year.
