Comedian Maysoon Zayid to Perform at Reston Community Center

Maysoon Zayid, a professional comedian and disability activist, will perform at Reston Community Center on Saturday, March 31 at 8 p.m.

Zayid has performed in New York Clubs and was a headliner on the Arabs Gone Wild Comedy Show and The Muslims Are Coming! — a documentary that follows the attempts of American Muslim comics to combat prejudice and misconceptions of Islam through humor.

In 2013, she was selected as an honoree for the United Cerebral Palsy of New York City’s Women Who Care Awards. She was also a full-time on-air contributor on Countdown with Keith Olbermann.

The show is recommended for adults ages 18 and older. Attendees under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Tickets are $15 for Reston residents and $20 for all others.
