Storyline

In a time when East and West do not seem to understand each other, top stand-up comics of Middle Eastern descent Ahmed Ahmed, Aron Kader, and Maz Jobrani take it upon themselves to single-handedly bridge the gap with an original comedy tour that has become one of the hottest concert tickets in the country. Special guest Dean Obeidallah, who's appeared on Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and is a founder of the New York Arab-American Comedy Festival, joins the "Axis of Evil" creators for this sold-out, no-holds-barred event that has made headlines everywhere from CNN to Newsweek. Nothing is off-limits. Whether it's gay terrorists or the difficulty of flying in post-9/11 America, The Axis of Evil Comedy Tour blasts stereotypes with outrageous humor. Ahmed says he always knows who the air marshal is on a flight: "It's the guy who's reading People magazine upside down and is looking right at me." Written by Anonymous

Great show!!!
18 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw them and they were great at the DC's Warner Theatre. I'm not Middle Eastern, I'm not Muslim, I am an Average Joe whose learned very little Arabic and I pretty much "got" most of the humor. Some of it had some cultural references nuances that were unfamiliar, but most of it was understandable.

Essentially it's a comedy tour about not so much about politics, but mostly about the Arab-American / Middle Eastern immigrant experience. The immigrant experiences has been done by everybody else so why not this group.

And thank God that they did! It was funny and also insightful to their culture. These guys were excellent comedians they made their point. Ahmed Ahmed was the best with his present-day and childhood recollection "Please go the store..." Hilarious!

In retrospect I'd have to say that as much as Westerners find it a fashionable to criticize other cultures, I'd say that perhaps it they who are wearing the burkas made of that delicate and woven fabric called ignorance. See this video and if you can catch the act in your city, go out and see them. It's good entertainment and good insight to other cultures.
