In his new Hulu original series, Egyptian-American comedian and actor Ramy Youssef stars as Ramy Hassan, a first generation Egyptian-American who is on a spiritual journey in his politically divided New Jersey neighborhood. Ramy, which debuts April 19, will bring a new perspective to the screen as it explores the challenges of what it is like being caught between a Muslim community that thinks life is a moral test and a millennial generation that thinks life has no consequences. Youssef will participate in a discussion after a special preview screening of the first three episodes. The series also features Steve Way, Dave Merheje, Laith Nakli, May Calamawy, Mohammed Amer.
