Sufian Zhemukhov is an award-winning author and performer. He received The JJ Reneaux Emerging Artist Award from the National Storytelling Network. Sufian’s solo shows have been featured off-Broadway and nationwide. NPR characterized his “Flirting Like an American" as "a show about romance, culture, and one immigrant's story” and "From Russia Without Love" as “an escapist James Bond parody." Sufian's stories are based on his personal experience as a first-generation immigrant and political analyst, which might be funnier than it sounds. His recent book won The Best Book Award from the International Studies Association. See more in WIKI.
