Born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, which is labeled as the “City of Innovators!” It has been home to such luminaries as Edwin C. Moses, Dr. Charles Drew, Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Erma Bombeck, John Kettering and most famously the Wright Brothers. Saleem jokes he has much in common with the famous aviation pioneers : “Like Orville and Wilbur, the minute I could, I flew out of Dayton too.” The comedian quips, “I rarely go back…. mainly because my family still lives there.” However, the sky is the limit for Saleem and he is soaring his way to new comedic heights!
His credits include appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, NBC’s Last Comic Standing, TBS’s Lopez Tonight, FOX’s Best Damn Sport Show…Period and BET’s Comic View. He has worked with such music greats as The Temptations, Boyz II Men and Vanessa Williams. Comedy legends such as George Carlin, Joan Rivers, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, D.L. Hughley, Kathleen Madigan and Gary Shandling.
Lighting the fuse for this great show is the very talented and hilarious Carmen Morales and hosted by local favorite Kenny Carpenter.
