Comedy Central will air Menna w Fina (منا و فينا) this March and April exclusively on OSN. This series, comprising eight locally produced stand-up specials, was filmed with a live audience in Dubai and Jeddah. Featuring some of the most popular names, like Rajae Qawas and Ali Sultan among other Arabic comedians, the show will premiere on Comedy Central on OSN, from Sunday 10 March at 10:30pm KSA/11:30pm UAE.

The half-hour episodes will air in Arabic and English, and will also be available to watch on the network’s streaming service, OSN Play.

Speaking about the programme, Tracey Grant, VP of Content and Channels for VIMN Middle East said: “Comedy brings people together and this is especially important in a region that is so diverse, with many nationalities, cultures and points of view. While we are excited by the breadth of international talent that comes to the Middle East and works with our network, finding and promoting local grassroots talent is equally important for our continued relevance to regional audiences.”
