They Tried To Bury Us with Tamer Kattan

Comedy Pop-Up Podcast Network

Each week, an immigrant of the United States shares their American origin story. THEY TRIED TO BURY US is a weekly podcast hosted by Egyptian-born comedian Tamer Kattan and his mother Kity. Being the son of a Muslim father and a Jewish mother left Tamer struggling with notions of identity. It’s that exact struggle that Tamer and his mom dive into as they sit down with guests to hear about their American origin stories. “They tried to bury us, they didn’t know we were seeds” is a Mexican saying an elderly neighbor shared with Tamer to encourage him to never, ever give up. You’ll laugh at the light-hearted stories that shine a light on Halloween and other terrifying holidays for immigrants, other times you’ll cry at the love, courage and hope it takes to leave everything you know behind, just for the opportunity to pursue happiness. The goal of the show is to remind us all that the only “us and them” is US vs. the hate, greed and corruption of the people in positions of power.

All Episodes

Tamer and Kity start off season two with a BANG! They had a really cool conversation with hilarious actor, producer and comedian, Emma M Pyne. They dive deep into how differently femininity looks in America Vs. Europe, how lonely it can be to chase your dreams, how complaining about your country is one of the most patriotic things you can do and how much more in touch women are to their intuition than men.

Bogdan Grebeniuk was a professional swimmer who died and came back to life. The guy literally fought death...and won. At the tender age of 18, while training in a pool in Ukraine, his heart began to pound so intensely that he could see the skin on his chest rising up and down. He was unaware of a heart condition he was born with and was having a heart attack in the pool. For most, this would be the final chapter of an athletic career, for Bogdan “Shark” Grebeniuk it was chapter ONE of an inspiring new life filled with love, family and an incredible America origin story.Video versions of They Tried to Bury Us: https://tinyurl.com/y8kxzelgPodcast Website: https://www.comedypopupla.com/tamerFollow us:https://www.instagram.com/tamerkathttps://www.instagram.com/kitykattan/https://twitter.com/TamerKattanhttps://www.instagram.com/comedypopuphttps://www.instagram.com/cpupodcasts

This is a story of love over politics. A story of a husband and wife who have to fight for the next three years (IF everything goes well) just to live under the same roof and start their lives. Jessica is an American woman in Maryland who is married to an Iranian man in Spain. It’s not the distance that’s keeping them apart, it’s the ban. If after hearing their story, you want to help couples like Jessica and Pouya there’s an amazing campaign happening right now where people who are being impacted by the ban or want more sensible fact-based laws can upload a video to: https://app.in-it.com/missions/StopTheBanYou can also reach out to your Senators and representatives in Congress and ask for clarification of how the ban really works/ waiver process, granting immediate family exemptions and call for the State Department to be held accountable (better reporting on the ban as a whole).Video versions of They Tried to Bury Us: https://tinyurl.com/y8kxzelgPodcast Website: https://www.comedypopupla.com/tamerFollow us:https://www.instagram.com/tamerkathttps://www.instagram.com/kitykattan/https://twitter.com/TamerKattanhttps://www.instagram.com/comedypopuphttps://www.instagram.com/cpupodcasts
