The young Habib got his start in show business in 1983 working as an oud polisher for Munir Bashir. A year later Habib began working as an opening act for various acts across the region.
Habib worked at many comedy clubs around the Middle East through the 1980's. His one-night-only showcase at the Improv in Damascus in 1989 is widely regarded by both Arab comedy critics as one of the best performances ever. His legendary bit, "What's the deal with Tabouleh?" cemented his status as one of the regions biggest celebrities and earned him a star on the Beirut Walk of Fame. The star was irreparably damaged by rockets in 2006.
However, not everybody was a Habib fan. His predeliction for silly songs and his penchant for corny jokes soon found him falling out of favor with the Iraqi mainstream. He became known as "Baghdad's Second-Worst Comedian." Then, in 1993, he was demoted to "Baghdad's Worst Comedian" after Baghdad's Worst Comedian did not vote for Saddam.
Habib currently resides in Baghdad with his wife and three camels (Billy, Petey and Abdul-Rahman). He is a distant relative of Iraqi basketball star Hassan “Too Tall” Jones. Habib tours the world singing bad songs and telling equally bad jokes and appears in a number of videos....
His personality is very unique, and if you mean a lot to him, he'll let you know. He acts tough but hes actually got such a soft heart. He's got a great sense of humor, and isn't afraid to show it off! He acts horny at times but has a soft side. But he doesn't let many people know it, only the ones he can really trust. He's a very good flirt, but when in a relationship he sticks to that girl and only her. He lets her know how special she is in many ways, and shows her how much he adores her. Sometimes he'll have his bad days where he takes it out on you, but if he believes your worth it, he will always come back to you after a fight! Having him in your life is one of the best things you could have.
His smile can brighten your world straight away, and just being with him will bring you so many memories and laughs. You may not realise it yet, but losing him would be a huge loss, don't ever let Habib go. He would leave such a huge impact, and a hole in your heart forever.
Having him as you boyfriend, would be worth it in so many ways.
If Habib left my life, I don't know how I would survive.
Man,them Habibs be trippin up in Diamond Shamrock and shit!
