-The Esquire 100 - Abdulaziz "Bin" Baz
Dubai-born comedian Abdulaziz Baz is one of the biggest social media stars in the Arabian Gulf.
Known as ‘Bin Baz’ to his hoard of five-million-plus online followers, he is known for posting short, hilarious clips that lampoon everyday life in the Emirates. Whether he’s pranking friends or poking fun at his commenters, Baz offers an insight into a new generation of socially-minded Arab youth.
His ever-loyal YouTube subscribers (550K+ in total) come for the laughs, but also for Baz’s sincere sense of joy—last year he surprised taxi drivers in Abu Dhabi with airline tickets home to visit their families in other countries. Whatever he’s doing, Baz seems to know exactly how to make people smile.
