Persians haven't been relevant since they were mutants in Zack Snyder's 300…
... until now. Amir Mo is a Persian/Iranian comedy writer/director/actor/comedian whose debut feature, THE SEX ADDICT, garnered over 1800% ROI and features comedy veterans Horatio Sanz (Saturday Night Live), Ken Davitian (Borat), & Bryan Callen (MADtv).
Amir is a cynical oddball with an absurdist imagination and an unhealthy obsession with edgy humor. He writes fish out of water commercial comedies with a provocative twist that are designed to pull audiences out of their safe space. He comes groomed from the prestigious NBC Page Program, where he worked on a number of notable programs like THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY LENO and Jimmy Fallon's GUYS WITH KIDS.
He recently got into Austin Film Festival and was awarded "best writer" and "best comedy pilot" at the LA Live Film Festival. He was named to Urban Arts Magazine's 40 Under 40 list, runner-up in Roadmap Writers Diversity Initiative, and received the diversity scholarship to Upright Citizens Brigade for improv and writing. He’s earned high praise from the Lucas Bros., T.J. Miller, Tommy Chong, Jim Norton, Andy Dick, Kristanna Loken, Sung Kang, and his golden Bichonpoo, Ollie, who he has split custody of with his ex-girlfriend.
