Najib Amhali (born April 4, 1971) is a Moroccan-born Dutch stand-up comedian and actor.

Najib Amhali was born in Nador. He has gained popularity partly because of his flawless command of Dutch and ability to show the Dutch how the life of immigrants and ethnic minorities in the Netherlands can be.

'Als Marokkaan kom ik graag bij de mensen thuis.' (As a Moroccan I like to visit people in their homes).

This is how Najib Amhali started the cabaret festival in Leiden (Netherlands), where he was the winner of both the audience award and the jury award. His fans are a mix of native Dutch and ethnic minorities; Amhali holds a mirror up to their faces and shows them how trivial and ridiculous their behaviour can be.

Amhali created some cabaret shows himself, such as: Freefight, Veni Vidi Vici, Vol is Vol ('Full is Full'), Most Wanted and Zorg dat je erbij komt ('Make sure you're there').

Amhali is also an actor and he has starred in several Dutch productions. In 1999 he starred with Hans Teeuwen and Kim van Kooten in the movie Jezus is een Palestijn ('Jesus is a Palestinian'). In 2002 he played in the series Najib en Julia ('Najib and Juliet'), which was directed by filmmaker Theo van Gogh, who was murdered in 2004 by a Muslim extremist. In 2004 Amhali played in the film Shouf Shouf Habibi!

In May 2006 Amhali hosted a show about the 2006 FIFA World Cup in which he discussed all aspects of the Dutch team and collected money for charity.
