Feraz is also a seasoned writer and recently directed the film "Curious Georgina," which starred Himself and Bobby Lee, screened at Just for Laughs in Montreal and was distributed by Kevin Hart’s LOL Network.
Feraz has been featured in the LA Times, The Atlantic Magazine, Rolling Stone, and several documentaries. Feraz also performed in the 2016 CBS Diversity Showcase, and wrote several sketches that appeared in the show. Recently, his stand-up album "Chillennial" charted in Billboard's top 10, and iTunes' top 3 for comedy albums, and his tracks regularly play on Sirius XM.
