 TELL US ABOUT YOU

I am an engineer-turned-CEO-turned-comedian – by choice! I was the Male Comedian Winner at the 2007 Original Las Vegas Comedy Festival. I’ve performed in the USA, UK, Spain, India, Bangladesh and Indonesia. I’m the owner/founder of Naveed’s Comedy Club, Bangladesh’s first and only comedy club. I host and co-produce The Naveed Mahbub Show, Bangaladesh’s version of the Jay Leno Show. I have a weekly column on The Daily Star, Bangladesh’s leading and highest circulating English daily newspaper. I love to travel; I’ve lived in and travelled to about thirty countries. I’m married with two daughter – yes, I’m minority at home.

You are a very busy man!

THE FIRST JOKE YOU EVER TOLD

Offstage: Don’t remember. But probably, ‘Mommy, daddy!”
Onstage: My name is Naveed Mahbub. Last name pronounced ‘Maa Boob’. My friends call me ‘Squeeze’ – “Hey, Squeeze Maa Boob”. Yeah, pretty lame.

LAMEST JOKE YOU EVER HEARD

“You are an engineer? You must know a lot about trains.”

OTHER JOB/CAREERS

I’ve been a former CEO of IBM and Nokia Siemens Networks, an engineer, a corporate trainer, a motivational speaker, high school teacher, university lecturer, interpreter and a translator.
