Yesterday was the first episode of Adel Karam’s much anticipated show “Hayda Haki” on MTV. Hayda Haki is a late night show very similar to the talk shows we see in the US (like The Tonight Show with Jay Leno) and is hosted by Comedian Adel Karam.
I had high expectations for this show, which is rarely the case for Lebanese shows, and it didn’t fail to impress! The introduction was a bit cliché and boring but then things got better and better. Adel promised that he will criticize everyone, which I didn’t believe at first, but he did mock Hezbollah and Mustaqbal, Berri, Aoun and even Strida Geagea and the Lebanese Forces in the first part of the show. He also mocked Ahlam, Nidal el Ahmadiyyeh and new Lebanese songs.
Moreover, the best part of the show was with Interior Minister Marwan Charbel. The interview was freaking hilarious and the minister was funny (in a good way this time). Adel was quite daring with his questions which took me by surprise to be honest. I think it’s better if you watch it and judge for yourself.
All in all, this was a great start for a very promising show and I hope they keep it up this way.
