Assad is writing this in third person so it sounds official and he can fool you into thinking he is way more important than he really is. If you’re reading this for any serious reason you should know right off the bat that you’re wasting your time. If you’ve reached this line in the bio, there is seriously something wrong with you because who really cares about Assad Motavasseli besides Assad Motavasseli?
Assad is a writer, producer, comedian but before all… a model. He is a California boy that was raised by a pack of wolves, and by wolves I mean hairy Persian parents. It wasn’t easy growing up as the only Middle Eastern kid in town. The other kids would eat PBJ’s while he was always stuck with smelly curry. It made his face look like this :( but he soon became the class clown because at an early age, he was trying to get laid.
Now in his mid 20’s Assad is one of the fastest growing comics in the world, but he still hasn’t gotten laid from his jokes, so he might quit soon.
I told you I have no idea why you're reading this...
