Born in Toronto to Sudanese parents and then raised in Alberta, Faris brings a unique mix of storytelling and observational humour to the stage. Known for his relaxed delivery and quick wit, his unpredictable style makes for big laughs and unforgettable crowd work moments.

A Yuk Yuk’s regular, Faris has been featured at Just For Laughs Vancouver, Sled Island 2022, and has toured all over Canada. Faris partnered with Telus STORYHIVE to film Telus' first ever comedy special, SEND HELP, released in February 2023.

Faris is also featured on the Just For Laughs: Originals album, Substitute Teacher Energy, now playing on Sirius XM and available on all streaming platforms.

In his first foray into acting, Faris played in the 2021 short film Open Mic at the Comedy Cabaret, which was selected and shown at the Calgary International Film Festival.
