About Shereen

Shereen Kassam is a world-renowned comedian, speaker, and podcaster

Shereen Kassam Best Keynote Speaker

Hello! I’m Shereen.


Utilizing comedy and improv, I deliver engaging keynote speeches, workshops, and coaching to students and corporate executives 

I am an internationally touring stand-up comedian who has performed worldwide on stages from New York to Saigon.  In 2017, I was a finalist in HBO’s Comedy Wings Competition and opened for Arsenio Hall.  In addition to being a finalist in Florida’s Funniest Female competition, I am a previous winner of the Orlando Improv Clash of the Comics and the Brickell Comedy Festival.  I have had the opportunity to work with Arsenio Hall, Carlos Mencia, Mitch Fatel, Rodney Perry, and Myq Kaplan.

You can catch me regularly on iHeartRadio’s #1 Morning Talk Show.

I am also the host of the top-rated Apple podcast – Creative Breakthrough – a podcast that spotlights successful creative entrepreneurs.  Creative Breakthrough has been ranked as one of the best podcasts for Design.

When I’m not touring the world, I’m sipping chai lattes and pouring over data as a Strategy Manager at The Walt Disney Company.  Previously, I have worked in various roles at JPMorgan, Deloitte, and Amazon where I also consumed a lot of lattes!  I received my BA from Brown University and an MBA from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.  Currently, I reside in Orlando, Florida and have a serious problem saying no to chocolate and chicken wings.
