Ramy Youssef is a Golden Globe-winning Egyptian-American creator, actor, producer, director, and comedian who brings his unique voice and perspective to his storytelling. Best known for his Golden Globe-winning role on the Hulu comedy series “Ramy,” Youssef is an incredibly sharp-witted and relatable voice for millennials and boomers alike.
In 2020, the Television Academy nominated Youssef for two Primetime Emmy Awards in the categories of “Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series” and “Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series” for “Ramy.” In addition to Ramy’s nominations, two-time Academy Award®-winner Mahershala Ali, who joined the cast for season 2, was nominated for his performance in the category of “Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.” Youssef won the 2020 Golden Globe Award on behalf of “Ramy” in the category of ‘Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy’ and was nominated once again in the same category for 2021. “Ramy” also won a 2020 Peabody Award and was nominated for a 2019 Gotham Award for ‘Best Breakthrough Series – Short Format’ and a 2020 Writers Guild Award in the category of ‘Comedy/Variety Specials’ on behalf of his one-hour comedy special “Ramy Youssef: Feelings.”
Youssef created, produced, directs, and stars in “Ramy.” Inspired by his own experiences, the show centers around a first-generation Egyptian-American Muslim on a spiritual journey in his politically divided New Jersey neighborhood. The third season of the show is out now on Hulu. Ramy and fellow comedian Mo Amer also collaborated to create a spin-off series for Netflix called “Mo,” based solely on Mo’s character in “Ramy.” The first season of “Mo” is out now on Netflix.
Youssef recently signed a first look deal with A24 and is working on creating and developing further projects with Apple and Netflix. The first show for Apple will star “Ramy’s” series regular Stephen Way in a story illustrating the perspective and experience of a disabled person navigating life in a disabled community. Youssef will executive produce both this series and an untitled show currently in production with Netflix.
