Couples Therapy: A Comedy Show

Couples Therapy is your scheduled appointment to laugh about relationships and single strife.

The show is a hilarious round-table discussion featuring comics and willing audience members, led by coupling failure Rahmein Mostafavi. You'll laugh your aching heart out about love, dating, sex, single-hood, and married life -- cuz what else CAN you do?! Is he leaving dirty socks around the house? Is she spending too much time on her phone and ignoring you? Are you befuddled about why you only match with crazy people online?! Let’s figure it out together.

For better or worse, this cast of comic therapists will have you in tears ... one way or another!

ABOUT RAHMEIN

Rahmein Mostafavi charms crowds with comic timing and charisma developed during a decade of live performance. He addresses social and political topics with a combination of satirical and observational comedy, leaving audiences with a greater sense of purpose, sex appeal and the occasional leg cramp.

Rahmein entered the stand-up world after working as a longtime cast member of “Shear Madness,” the acclaimed Kennedy Center improv/comedy whodunit. His natural joke writing ability, combined with his acting chops, have won him rave reviews in both the Washington area and around the country. He also produces events under the “Cool Cow Comedy” banner, bringing live comedy to venues in Maryland and Virginia.

Rahmein has shared the stage with some of the best comics in the nation, including Dave Attell, Jake Johannsen, Artie Lange, Bert Kreischer, Rich Vos, Jon Lovitz, Tim Meadows, Joe Matarese, Bob Marley, The Sklar Brothers, Jen Kirkman, Red Grant, Godfrey, Joe Torry, Kyle Kinane, Finesse Mitchell, and Maz Jobrani. He has been featured at the Laugh Your Asheville Off comedy festival, The Devil Cup, Red Clay, The Cleveland Comedy Festival, and the Cape May Comedy Festival. Rahmein has been seen on FOX, heard regularly on Sirius XM, was featured in “The Truth About Money” on PBS, and was honored to be a speaker at the world famous TEDx Talks.

Born in Iran, Rahmein moved to the United States with his family at a very young age. He currently resides in Northern Virginia.
