And she’s going to perform at the Egyptian Theatre.

"I’m Egyptian, so, of course, it’s like home turf," Shehata said during a phone interview from her home in Los Angeles.

Shehata will appear Friday, Aug. 1, and Saturday, Aug. 2, with fellow comedian Dave Goldstein, who has appeared on "Late Night with Conan O’Brien," The Comedy Network, Sirius/XM Satellite Radio, The National Lampoon Radio Network, and Comedy.net.
