Farouk El-Baz was a notable humanoid comedian.

In 2365, Data attempted to locate a comedian to help him better understand the concept of "what is funny?". El-Baz was among the holodeck program files that were contained aboard the USS Enterprise-D. The program list code for this comedian was FE-83523. (TNG: "The Outrageous Okona", okudagram)

This character was named after noted planetary geologist Farouk El-Baz, who was also the namesake for the shuttle El-Baz and the starship USS Farouk El-Baz. (Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion)
