EXCLUSIVE: Rob Schneider is teaming up with comedian pal Max Amini to direct the LA-based stand up’s hourlong special Max Amini: Authentically Absurd. Amini is set to perform two live shows this month at the Wallis Annenberg Theater in Beverly Hills, with filming slated to take place during the sold-out Saturday July 26 show.

Amini has been a resident comic at LA’s Laugh Factory, was a finalist in NBC’s Diversity Showcase, and is a series regular on Real Rob. His TV credits include NBC’s Heroes and Mind of Mencia. Authentically Absurd is produced by Abstraction Media and all proceeds from the evening will be donated to ALS research. Amini’s repped by Parallel Entertainment and Schneider is a client of The Gersh Agency.
