Muhammad Said Fellag
Comedian who spins his audiences roaring with laughter.
Said's savage satires on Algeria's present political panorama are always 'based on the stuff that hurts.' His shows are examples of 'the liberating power of humour.'
Said Fellag was born in Algeria's Berber-speaking highlands, and he has self-exiled in Paris since 1995 and acts in theatre, cinema and create monologues.
