NY Elite Magazine Interview with the Talented Comedian Edmond Çami

NY Elite: You are coming to New York city next week. Where did the idea behind this comedy show come from?

Edmond Çami: I’m coming to New York because I recently went viral on Instagram, and I noticed I had many Albanian followers that lived in NY. That same week I was working with one of my favorite comics Chris Monty who lives in NY and invited me to be part of his show. It worked out great.

NY Elite: What inspires your comedy? What do you like to joke about?

Edmond Çami: I love to joke about the differences between America and Albania. Most people like the joke I do about how when you win the lottery in Albania, you don’t win any money. You just get to leave. Americans love the joke because it sounds crazy to them, and Albanians love it because it’s the truth.

NY Elite: How would you describe your humor or style?

Edmond Çami: I would describe my humor as observational because I look at the world in two different perspectives, the Albanian and American way. My American friends will ask me questions about Albania and if they laugh or are surprised at my answer, I know there is a joke there or vice versa.
