With Dean Obeidallah, Aron Kader and Maysoon Zayid!
The tour features three of the countries top Arab-American comedians: Dean Obeidallah and Aron Kader – both known from being part of the successful “Axis of Evil” Comedy Tour and Maysoon Zayid – the country’s top female Arab-American comedian.
“With Bush gone and President Obama reaching out to the Arab and Muslim world, the Arab community feels we can finally have some fun!” declares Obeidallah who has been seen on Comedy Central, ABC’s “The View” and is the executive producer of the Amman Stand Up comedy Festival – the first and only stand up comedy festival in the Middle East history. “Not that everything is great for us, but we feel with Bush out we can finally feel free to make fun of ourselves in a way we never did before,” Obeidallah added.
“We do miss Bush for the material, but we are all much happier to have a President who knows how to read,” jokes Aron Kader who has also been seen on Comedy Central, “Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen,” and FX’s “The Shield.”
The comics tackle everything from politics to pop culture to crazy Arab mother-in-laws, all from their unique point of view. “The comedy is written for everyone to get- but if you are of Middle Eastern heritage, you not only will laugh, you will also relate to it,” adds Obeidallah
