Nozar Azadi (Persian: نوذر آزادی‎‎), best known for his role as Aghai (Mr.) Ghatebeh (after his role in a famous Iranian TV series), is an Iranian comedian and actor who was famous in Iran in the 1970s, mostly because of his role in TV series such as Italia, Italia, Kaf show, and Okhtapus. He was born in Kermanshah, Iran, in 1938 (1317 in the Iranian calendar).

Born in Kermanshah, Azadi appeared in many shows, television series and films in the Iranian era prior to the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Azadi starred in many films of Samad and Leila, the Kaf Show directed by Parviz Sayad, and his own television series Italia Italia, playing the character Ghatebeh. Ghatebeh played in many shows where he impersonated an Kermanshahi man who was a con man by nature, very slick and a great communicator/womanizer. Ghatebeh had a distinguished Kermanshahi accent that to this day, 40 years later, people of Iran still remember with amusement.
