Episode 68: Zahra Ali


This episode starts out with something NEW called Maggi & Me Mood Music. Both hosts, Maggi Mayfield and David Earl Waterman set up the show with the music that reflects their mood. Then we meet, comedian and actress, Zahra Ali. 

Right off the bat, we learn that Zahra and Maggi both grew up in New Jersey. She explains her hustle in Los Angeles and the show she runs called Facial Recognition Comedy before we jump into her #Fave5 songs.


She takes us through her upbringing with strick Muslim parents that didn't allow music in the house and how her mom let her sneak it in! She talks about when she first started having crushes, the one band that her family bonded over, how she handled not being allowed to attend school dances/functions, and life as a bicoastal comedian fighting the social norm. 

If you liked her songs, you can check out all the YTunes Shuffle Song Nuggets on her #Fave5 here.

This week, Band Or Bar takes us to Miami, FL. Try and guess along with Zahra and Maggi before clicking the links. Then we wrap up with the story of her First Concert and the Last Concert she went to.

Keep up with her stand up and career and follow Zahra on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
