Although born in Tehran, Iran, Jobrani's parents moved to California and he grew up in Tiburon in the San Francisco Bay area. He attended Redwood High School in Larkspur. Jobrani did not take the conventional route to performing comedy. He studied political science and Italian at UC Berkeley, where he received a B.A. degree. In fact, Jobrani was enrolled in a Ph.D. program at UCLA when he decided to pursue his childhood dream of acting and performing comedy. He has since made appearances on shows like The Colbert Report, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Talkshow with Spike Feresten and regularly performs at top comedy clubs (in CA and NY) such as The Comedy Store. He also made an appearance as a dental patient on an episode of Still Standing. Jobrani was the Persian in the Axis of Evil Comedy Tour including Ahmed Ahmed and Aron Kader. He is currently on his "Brown and Friendly" tour, with K-Von, another Iranian-American comedian, opening his shows.

Jobrani makes jokes about racism, mainly racism against Persians and Arabs, but also makes a lighter note that they are not perfect, stating some of the flaws. His jokes tend to brighten up the stereotypical reputation of Middle Easterners. His well-known humorous phrase: "I am Persian.. like the Cat" has become popular in comedy scenes in the world.

Jobrani is married to an Indian-American woman and they currently reside in California with their infant boy.
