Hi, I'm Nina Kharoufeh

      Being an Arab-American, Muslim standup comedian, author, and  amateur boxer comes with a lot of life experiences. I proudly wear my religion on my sleeve, well actually on my head. I’ve been wearing a hijab since I was 13, and I have never let that get in the way of being myself, no matter how the odds were against me. 


My Success Story

    After graduating from Montclair State College of the Arts with a Bachelor Of Arts degree in media, I discovered a passion for comedy.  I began performing all over the United States, as well as internationally. Having opened up for top tier comedians such as Damon Wayans; Tiffany Haddish; Godfrey; Luenell; and more, has been a dream come true. I have been fortunate enough to have made appearances on The Food

Network; TRT; and Al Jazeera. I am currently on “Match Me Abroad”, TLC network.

 As if wearing several different hats, or hijabs, is not enough, I am currently gearing up for my first professional boxing match. My first published book, “I’m A Princess Too,” centers around a young Muslim girl just trying to live a normal life. This is the basis for  most of my stand up. “I’m A Princess Too” is available everywhere books are sold.

 My love for connecting people through comedy, writing, and as a matchmaker has brought me here. Nina’s Matchmaking allows me to connect good people, with like minded relationship goals. I hope to make my impact on this world, and into history books for generations to come.

Wishing you laughter, love, and peace-
