“Saleem said comedy has always been a part of his life, beginning with his birth. "You've heard about a breached birth, right?" he asked. "Well, I came out sideways and I've been funny every since." Kidding aside, Saleem said he chose comedy because he wanted to understand the concept of being funny. "There is more to it than just telling jokes," he said. "I have found that it's part of an art form that, hopefully, illuminates what's real in life." "There are lot of the things that society tells us that we need to do, like being conventional and fitting in," he said. "I'm not knocking on those who are able to do that, but I think that being a human being and what makes us special is the fact that we can elevate beyond that systematic living."”
“How Dare You! is Saleem's first release and it is superb. It is highly recommended to anyone who likes quality stand-up. It is even part of our top 10 comedy for 2012!”
"Saleem’s performance is charismatic and intelligent, fearless and irreverent, ridiculous and hilarious. The subject matter for this show ranges from the mildly political to the absolutely absurd, with topics that include airplane security, hyphenated racial backgrounds, and – Matthew McConaughey. And indeed, the note rings true: laughter, intelligence, and light."
