Kamyar696 – The Iranian Internet Comedy Star You Can Binge Watch All Day

It is quite commonly said that if you have the power to make people laugh, you have the power to heal. Comedy is a serious business and not an attribute of many. It is easier to make people feel sad or angry. But when it comes to making somebody laugh, you need to have that “funnybone”.

Being funny and witty are a part of someone’s nature. If that X factor is not in you, no matter how hard you try, you won’t be able to make people laugh. Thanks to the internet, people are now able to channel their funny side and showcase it to the world. Kamyar696 is the new internet comedy sensation who has gathered a massive following in a short time.

Amir Hamdollahzadeh is a 25-year-old Iranian national born in the city of Saveh. At an early age, Amir showed signs of many talents such as singing, acting, and comedy. As a young adult full of life and vigor, Amir explored his creative side with all three art forms and began to build up fans in the country. Amir makes short format funny videos on Instagram with the help of his friends and professional actors.

The videos are quite low budget which makes it easier for Amir to release it quicker. Kamyar696 on Instagram has over 2 million followers and his videos receive hundreds and thousands of views in just a couple of hours. When asked about his tryst with comedy, Amir replied, “I love to entertain and make people laugh. I truly believe it is one of my strengths that can brighten somebody’s day”. He also adds, “I have a very different style of comedy compared to other comedians in Iran. I love doing improvisation comedy through which I can create multiple personalities”. On his future plans, Amir is aiming to appear in Iranian movies and eventually explore the possibilities in Hollywood. Apart from comedy, Amir is also a singer who has released three tracks and collaborated with other musicians from Iran.

Today’s generation is not only restless but also full of zest and eagerness. Driven by passion and determination, the young generation wants to achieve big and quick. In a world full of intense competition, it is always good to have an edge over others in terms of skill, experience and above all, energy.
