The Story: Teatro is essentially an Alexandrian venue which invited Al Hezb El Comedy in 2012 to perform in the Backstreet Festival, an annual event that hosts international artits. They opened up Teatro Maadi to offer stand up comedy in this incredible venue in Maadi, Cairo in 2014. It’s situated next to the Embassy of South Africa and allows people to come from all sides of Cairo. We’re happy to see them grow and to help expand the cultural scene.
