KCRW’s Behind the Screens: Elvis Mitchell in Conversation with Ramy Youssef (Presented by Hulu)
August 24, 2020 • 6:00 pm PDT
KCRW invites you to a conversation with KCRW Host Elvis Mitchell and Ramy Youssef, star of the hit Hulu comedy “Ramy.” Join us for this special pairing and first installment of KCRW’s Behind the Screens event series. Who knows…Ramy may even answer your burning question!
The Golden Globe® Award-winning actor Ramy Youssef returns to Hulu for his critically-acclaimed performance in the Hulu Original comedy series “Ramy.” The series follows first-generation, Egyptian-American Ramy Hassan (Youssef) who is on a spiritual journey in his politically-divided New Jersey neighborhood. “Ramy” brings a new perspective to the screen as it explores the challenges of what it’s like to be caught between a religious community, who believes life is a moral test, and a millennial generation that doubts an afterlife even exists. In the second season, Ramy delves further into his spiritual journey, finding a new Muslim community and embracing a deeper commitment to his faith.
Alongside Youssef, the newest season stars two-time Academy Award® and Golden Globe® Award-winner Mahershala Ali. The series also features Mohammed Amer, Hiam Abbass, Amr Waked, May Calamawy, Dave Merheje, Laith Nakli and Steve Way.
“Ramy” is written, executive produced, created by and stars Ramy Youssef, executive produced by A24’s Ravi Nandan with co-creators Ari Katcher and Ryan Welch, Jerrod Carmichael, and produced by A24.
