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

A very funny show, walah
23 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

Funny, really funny. Being middle-eastern myself I think allowed me to enjoy this so much more. I've watched Catholic and Jewish comedians tell jokes about their religion and cultural upbringing but was never really able to get that into it because I'm not familiar with those experiences first-hand. But finally, middle-eastern comics perform and tell jokes about middle-eastern style culture and such. Not that someone that isn't Arabic can't enjoy this but it helps just as it helps hearing Catholic comics joke about how dull they think church is.

For instance, when he made the joke about a pill called Arab-B-Gone or something, he mentioned that you'd stop calling your friends "habibi" which is Arabic for my love. Normally, I don't think someone that isn't middle-eastern would get that and laugh as I did.

Now of course, it's not all just about their middle-eastern life but they tackle the issue of terrorism and prejudice. Now, hearing about this I thought they'd be a disgrace and just do "Hey look, I'm a terrorist!" joke to try to appeal to American audience. Thankfully, I was wrong. They did do a few terrorist jokes but didn't sell themselves out for the sake of the joke. Last thing I have to say is that I'm so glad to see middle-eastern comics perform. I've seen a lot of black, white, Chinese, Indian and Latin comics while praying for stand up from a middle-eastern. I really hope this special inspires more middle-eastern comics.
