Sohrab Forouzesh is a Chicago based comedian and writer who won’t take it personally if you say his name wrong. He moved to the U.S from Iran when he was just eight years old, and his material is heavily influenced by his experiences as a fat Persian kid growing up in America. His rapid-fire delivery paired with his down to earth relatability is what makes him a favorite of the local Chicago comedy scene. He was recently named a finalist for StandUP NBC, and he’s also a regular at the world famous Laugh Factory, Comedy Bar, and Zanies Comedy Club.
Sohrab got his start in comedy while attending Western Michigan University where he won The Kalamazoo Comedy Competition and was a finalist in the TBS and Rooftop Comedy’s National College Comedy Competition. Before graduating college he opened for Nick Swardson and performed at the prestigious Gilda’s Laughfest Comedy Festival. He’s an Iranian comedian even your racist uncle will love.

Hemingway Biographer Doing Virtual Q and A This Week

In conjunction with the new Ken Burns PBS documentary on author Ernest Hemingway, WQPT will hold a special 30-minute virtual screening and discussion with Mary V. Dearborn, a Hemingway biographer

Dearborn’s biography of Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) was published in 2017.

featured in the film, on April 27.

The free virtual event will take place that Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. and attendees will have the opportunity to ask Dearborn their Hemingway-related questions. Participants will also have the chance win copies of Dearborn’s 2017 Hemingway biography, a Google Home smart speaker, and other great prizes.

“Hemingway has this public image of being this extraordinarily masculine, kind of hypermasculine, macho guy, and that he had a huge following among men,” documentary director Lynn Novick said in a Monday release from WQPT, the Quad-Cities PBS station.

“We spent a lot of time and effort to try to understand his relationship with the women in his life: his mother, his sisters, his four wives, other women that mattered to him, others who broke his heart,” she said. “We probably only scratched the surface, but the women we have interviewed, the women in his life, and hearing the voices of his wives who have a lot to say, it’s very interesting.”

“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to connect an internationally-renowned Hemingway historian with our community,” said Michael Carton, WQPT’s director of education and outreach. “I think Ms. Dearborn understands Hemingway’s relationship with women almost better than anyone else, and it’ll be great to be able to ask her questions that the film wasn’t able to answer and get her answers.”
