Nationally recognized comedian, Bill Burr sat down with Joey Neill of Tampa Bay’s Creative Loafing for an interview. When asked if Burr had an up&comer on his radar, Fahim Anwar’s name is tossed into the ring.
“Being in the business for over 25 years, is there anyone coming up you’ve been paying attention to? ” asked Neill.
Oh yeah, I actually just saw someone the other night. This kid Fahim Anwar I really like. He’s a great joke writer and his onstage personality is really cool to watch.
Fahim Anwar traded in his career as an aerospace engineer to pursue his career in stand-up comedy. Anwar has released an hour special “There’s No Business Like Showbusiness.” You’ve seen him on CONAN, The Late Night With Seth Myers and popular movies like Neighbors and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
Currently, Anwar is a writer for Comedy Central and is quickly rising to the big dog house of Comedy.
