  1. Hi Maz my name is Arian and I am 13 years old.  I am one of your biggest fans. I was wondering when you are  coming to Toronto and get a free front row pass or ticket to watch your show

  2. This is so me after all my family members have asked me to dance at the aroosi and I'm standing on the sidelines tarof-ing like "vayyy nemitoonam! nah valah! To boro beraghs!" Then finally someone will grab me by the arms and pull me onto the dance floor and I'm majboor now to start with the eyebrow thing that will eventually lead up to the infamous hip shake Maz was so brilliantly demonstrating in this video 😂👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

  3. I think it would be great if you put up some educational material too. like some tricks and skills needed for writing stuff and performing a stand-up. I myself am trying to write things and I could really use some tips from the best Iranian in the business. are there any mistakes one should avoid? are there any helpful practices? share your experiences with the enthusiasts in a professional manner. AGAIN…that would be sooooooo great! kind of a Masterclass.

  4. hey Maz

    You are too cool…..I love your humor….

    At the beginning you sounded like an aerobics instructor…actually it seems Persian dancing is good exercise….lol

    Peace and Love and Kisses…

  5. Excellent, what a dance! I don't know how to dance but this is really helping me ahaha. Love u, just to come to France <3 God bless youtube !
