In 2018, he appeared in an episode of Epix's "Unprotected Sets" and was listed as one of Thrillist's 50 Best Undiscovered Comics. Mohanad, who is currently a digital producer on "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee," has a special skill for making you laugh at the seemingly unlaughable.

The Portland Mercury called him "an undisputed genius of comedy" and he's been featured on podcasts such as Lovett or Leave It, Pod Save The People and Harmontown. He also toured across the country with the critically acclaimed storytelling show Pop Up Magazine.
