Mo Amer, a Palestinian American standup comedian, is expected to join the Black Adam cast. This week has been notable for his career, as his latest series Mo hit the Netflix screens. His semi-autobiographical dramedy is about a family of Palestinian refugees and their struggles in Houston, Texas. The series has not only been trending on the Netflix Top 10 this week, but it also belted an amazing score on Rotten Tomatoes.

The series has a 100% rating from critics on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes and a 92% audience score. The series is streaming on Netflix around the globe, and Mo is enjoying great ratings. A24 produced the show. The series and producer are praised because of its humorous and vulnerable approach to Amer’s story as an immigrant.

Mo Amer and Ramy Youssef collaboratively created Mo. Remy was previously honored with a Golden Globe award for his honest approach to bringing the representation of Muslim Americans to television. According to Amer, the comedy’s main character is a mix of fiction and fact. Amer, a Palestinian refugee who fled the war in Palestine to Houston, Texas, where he was born, put his heart, sweat, and tears into the series.

Amer has spent his comedy career making light of his unique immigrant experiences while also shining a light on them. But he also has been thinking about how he can tell his story more groundedly since 2014. He finally got the chance to tell his story the way he wants with the Netflix series. He told CinemaBlend:

I’ve just been banking all these great stories – hard, painful stories that have happened to me throughout my life and fictionalizing them to make a series as we have. They’re all inspired by it. My mother, my ancestors, and my brother all have inspired this great story to tell. Yes, it’s like a Palestinian refugee immigrant story of working on the table, fish-out-of-water, trying to fit in and be seen and accepted. But it’s also like a story for everyone. It’s something that everyone can relate to. Everyone has felt insecure about where they are in the world, either socially or what they have, or living paycheck to paycheck and struggling to take care of their family.

It’s evident that people are connecting with the series now that it’s out. After many characters from Arab and Muslim American backgrounds were stereotyped or ignored, this series is a positive step in the right direction. The actor is now working in Black Adam, a DC movie.

Dwayne Johnson plays Black Adam, the DC anti-hero. The movie will open in theaters on Oct 22. It features the unleashing of an anciently powerful being and bringing together the Justice League of America (Dr. Fate, Hawkman, and Cyclone are all included in the movie. Mo Amer can be seen in Black Adam on Oct 21.
