Ismael Loutfi started doing stand up in Gainesville in 2011. He quickly became a local favorite and was soon vital to the maintenance and growth of the scene. Then one day he up and left. He moved to Atlanta to pursue comedy there; things have been fine. He has been described as being “witty,” and “nubile.” This will be his first time performing at Fest, and he excitedly awaits seeing Gainesville at its Gainesvilliest.
