Please be advised that if you’re attending a show at World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington, you should make plans to dine elsewhere beforehand. There are two great restaurants right across the street and plenty of others a few blocks away – we recommend Merchant Bar, La Fia, Chelsea Tavern and Twisted Soul.

This show will be perfomed in English.

Gad Elmaleh
Gad Elmaleh
GAD is arguably the biggest and most loved comedic star in France. Born in Casablanca, Morocco, he speaks Moroccan Arabic, French, English, and Hebrew.

GAD made history when he sold out the prestigious Olympia (Paris’ Carnegie Hall) for seven consecutive weeks, a task never before achieved. Immediately after his stint at the Olympia, GAD performed for another seven sold out weeks at Palais des Sports – a 3,800 seat venue.

GAD stars in more than 20 movies, including Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, and his Amazon series “Crisis in Six Scenes,” as well as the Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson film The Adventures of Tintin.

He decided to move to the U.S. to put himself through a new challenge, creating this new show called “Oh My Gad” in which he gives his perspective on his new life. His stand up is based on observational comedy.

Starting in September 2015, GAD sold out more than 50 nights during a residency at Joe’s Pub in New York and a tour through the US. Due to his success, the show moved to a tour of larger venues in September 2016 and January 2017, leading GAD to Carnegie Hall in February 2017.

The “Oh My Gad” standup special will premiere on Netflix in 2018.

GAD has been called "a dazzling protean entertainer" by the New Yorker, with The Guardian adding, “The chance to see Elmaleh spreading his wings in the U.S. is not one to be missed.”

He has made guest appearances on CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” and “Nightly Show,” and was featured on Jerry Seinfeld's “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.” He has also been heard on such radio shows as “This American Life,” PRI's “The World” and WNYC's Brian Lehrer, along with profiles in Vanity Fair, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times and the New Yorker.
Ryan Hamilton
Ryan's future is bright. Named one of Rolling Stone's five comics to watch and with standout appearances on NBC's Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, and the Showtime special Caroline Rhea and Friends, he's on his way to establishing himself as one of the nation's favorite stand-ups. Ryan has become a favorite among industry insiders by racking up national competition wins and festival appearances. He most recently won the MVP award for "The Comedy Leagues" competition at the Just For Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival, garnering him a spot on the Just For Laughs Canadian cross-country tour. Previously, he won Sierra Mist's "America's Next Great Comic Search", was a two-time finalist at the Boston Comedy Festival competition, and appeared at HBO's Las Vegas Comedy Festival as an up-and-coming talent. He's also a regular guest on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom radio show.
