Gad Elmaleh is one of the biggest and most recognizable comedic talents in the world, with a number of exciting projects in the works. Gad’s first English-language special, Gad Elmaleh: American Dream, is now available on Netflix. Filmed at The Town Hall in New York City, Gad throws his audience into hysterics as he recalls his experiences moving from Paris to New York, struggling to flirt with women in New York clubs, and how he wants to visit the Paris that Americans always talk about, but doesn’t really exist.
On stage, Gad continues to cement himself as one of the most widely known and beloved standup comedians working today. In January 2017, he released his latest comedy special Gad Gone Wild. The Netflix Original showcased Gad’s impressive multi-lingual ability, as the material was performed in a mix of English and French.
Since his move to the United States, Gad has quickly grown from being France’s most popular standup comedian to becoming a global comedy sensation. In 2015, he completed a residency at Joe’s Pub in New York City, which saw him performing to sold-out crowds for more than fifty nights. The impressive run led to a multi-city major comedy tour across the United States, culminating in a sold-out show at the world-famous Carnegie Hall in February 2017.
Overseas, Gad made history by selling out the prestigious Olympia theater hall in Paris for seven consecutive weeks, a feat that had never before been accomplished. He followed the sold-out run with another seven sold-out weeks of shows at the Palais des Sports, a 3,800-seat venue also in Paris.
In the film world, Gad starred as “Ben Salaad” in the Steven Spielberg-directed film The Adventures of Tintin and could be seen opposite Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris. His additional film work includes Pattaya, The Midnight Orchestra, Capital, Les Seigneurs, Happiness Never Comes Alone, Jack and Jill, La Rafle, Coco, and more. Gad has also made memorable appearances on a number of American television programs including Conan, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Daily Show, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and more.
Gad was born in Casablanca, Morocco and speaks four languages: Arabic, French, English, and Hebrew. He currently splits his time between New York and Los Angeles.
