Ramy Youssef getting his own autobiographical sitcom, Ramy, on Hulu

Get ready for a lot more Ramy in your life.

Hulu announced at its annual upfronts presentation today that it’s ordering Ramy, a sitcom based on the real life of stand-up comedian Ramy Youssef.

The series takes viewers into the world of Ramy, a first generation American Muslim who is on a spiritual journey in his politically-divided New Jersey neighborhood. Ramy will bring a new perspective to the screen as it explores the challenges of what it’s like being caught in between an Egyptian community that thinks life is moral a test, and a millennial generation that thinks life has no consequences.

You’ve seen Youssef previously perform his stand-up on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Ramy is written, executive produced, created by and starring Ramy Youssef, and executive produced by Jerrod Carmichael, co-creators Ari Katcher and Ryan Welch as well as A24’s Ravi Nandan. It’s the first series collaboration between Hulu and A24.
