The sitcom Ramy staring Ramy Yousef, follows a first-generation Egyptian-American balancing the dynamic between his religion, culture, family and daily millennial in New Jersey.
Many are comparing Ramy to Aziz Ansari's Master of None in the way that it's a comedy/drama about the intersection of culture and just typical dating and personal life stories. The show was nominated for two Emmys: Lead Actor in a Comedy (Ramy Youssef) and Supporting Actor in a Comedy (Mahersala Ali). Many think the show deserved a nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, producer and star Ramy Youssef said:
"This is a show about an Arab Muslim guy from New Jersey who jerks off too much and we got three Emmy nominations. I mean, that's a lot, that's so wild. There's so many more stories that that could be told so it excites me for the bigger picture, one that doesn't even include me."
