Ahmed is a regular on the TBS hit comedy show Sullivan and Son.

As the star of MTV’s hit show “Disaster Date”, K-von’s humor has made audiences laugh all over the world! His hilarious hidden-camera show displays his talents, each character proving funnier and more outrageous than the last.
Currently, he works with ScamBook.com as the spokesman/correspondent providing weekly videos on how you can protect yourself from fraud. And soon you’ll see K-von on-screen as the ‘Host’ of Warner Bros. all new game show, working alongside cartoon icons like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and many more!
On stage, K-von has become a crowd favorite as he pokes fun at himself, current events, and of course, the perils of growing up with a Dad from the Middle-East, and a Mom from Middle-America.
Performing internationally as a headliner and hosting special events year round keeps him busy. When not touring on his own, he regularly shares the stage with comics like Maz Jobrani, Russell Peters, and Brad Garrett just to name a few.
You can catch K-von on television in one of his many appearances, on his popular Youtube channel, or better yet, check him out live at an event near you!
