Ahmed Muhamed Helmy (Arabic: أحمد محمد حلمي عبد الرحمن عواد‎; born November 18, 1969 in Banha, Egypt) is an Egyptian comedian, actor, film producer, television presenter, and television personality. He started his career in 1993 on an Egyptian Satellite Broadcast. His career as an actor began when Sherif Arafa noticed Helmy in a children’s programme and was impressed by his comedic skills.

As a performer Helmy is notable for his fast-thinking and witty comedy. His career in mainstream Egyptian film began when director Sherif Arafa spotted him on the children’s program Leib Eyal (Kids’ Play) on the Egyptian Satellite Broadcast. Sherif found in him the comedic sense he was looking for to star his film, Aboud Ala El Hodoud (Abboud on the Borders). In that film, Helmy made his first big screen appearance, co-starring alongside Alaa Waley El Din. Thereafter, he quickly made a jump to leading roles in films such as Omar 2000, El Nazer (The Headmaster), El Selem We Al Tho’ban (Snakes And Ladders).

In 2007, Helmy topped the Egyptian Comedian market in the number of audience and revenue, mostly due to the success of his movie Keda Reda.

Helmy is married to fellow actress Mona Zaki and they have 3 children. It is reported that he has replaced his wedding ring and now wears one adorned with the colours of the Egyptian flag. It has become a trend in Egypt following the 2011 Egyptian revolution for people to adorn anything from car stickers and clothes with the red, black and white colours. He is also an ambassador for the United Nations and has collaborated with the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to help promote its Food for Education project launched in association with the Chipsy food products company.
