Just Like Us (2010)

Through the art of stand-up comedy in four countries in the Middle East, this documentary uproots the widely held misconception that Arabs have no sense of humor.

The director takes us on a hilarious tour from Dubai to Beirut, Riyadh to New York with a gaggle of other stand-up talent. Along the way, taboos of culture and geopolitics are exploded, and a younger generation of both comedy talents and audiences is born. Written by Anonymous

Hilarious, Heartfelt, and Endearing
24 June 2011 | by WhySoSyrianSee all my reviews

Thank you Ahmed and company for creating such an amazing, endearing, honest, heartfelt, thought provoking and FUNNY documentary! I recommend this to people from all walks of life because when you leave this movie you will have a sense of compassion for yourself, friends, family, neighbor and your fellow Arab/Muslim. With this documentary you will see the Middle Eastern people as people, like you and me, living and surviving and most of all laughing and loving.

The director has a heart-felt desire to see many of the conflicts of everyday middle eastern life resolved. He argues that comedy can be used to lighten the "heaviness" of these issues, and allow honest and frank discussion to be engaged in the pacification of the middle east.

Your favorite Syrian and Venezuelan couple.
