Sezar Alkassab is a stand-up comedian from Glasgow who has performed in various comedy venues around England with his comedy style which would best be described as conversational storytelling filled with one liners and clever punchlines. He enjoys taking known stories audiences are familiar with and deconstructing them into silly antidotes.

Whilst doing stand-up, he is also a filmmaker where he writes, produces, directs and edits various work such as feature films, short films, animations and web videos. In filmmaking, he enjoys more dramatic stories whereas his comedy is more socially awkward. In 2013 his debut independent film which he wrote, directed and starred in and got selected in various film festivals and won a few awards and in 2015, his animation "David" was also selected in various film festivals and won several awards from both Audience and Critics. 

In 2017, he wrote, produced, directed, edited and starred in a new feature film, Paint Dry, which will be shown in various film festivals.

Sezar initially connected with me via LinkedIn and I remember being excited and interested by his profile in particular his varied relevant experience. With a great deal of efficiency and rigour Sezar worked with our team at Pink Lobster Dating to create several short films and adverts. These films were created and directed with meticulous precision and the finished products are professional and exactly what we desired. I have never worked with someone so creatively independent and without ongoing demands. In fact Sezar has worked hard and consistently so far and has not needed to be told what to do! In other words his initiative is abounding.

He also has a BSc (Hons) in Product Design from Kingston University, graduating in 2013 achieving a second upper class degree. During his academic studies, he has work with various students from various backgrounds as well as working with prestigious clients such as Stanley Tools UK and New Balance Ltd.

Stanley Tools are essential for any property owner but storage and organisation is often a challenge. Sezar’s well executed solution efficiently presents the key tools in an accessible and organised manner right in the heart of the home
