Obeid performs stand-up comedy on Conan. His routine talks about being a mixed race American, gay rights and analogies that he uses to explain history and racism.
Actually, I used to teach American history to kids from the inner city. So I had to come up with analogies—gangster analogies—to relate the material. Like we were doing American history of the 1900’s. I was like the 1900’s. You got your French homie and your British homie. A German dude starts picking on your homies. You’re like “what the hell?” So, you knock the German dude out and the whole party’s like, “damn.”
