Muslim-American Comedy Special

I noticed some coverage of this special called “Stand Up: Muslim-American Comics Come of Age” on PBS that’s airing on May 11th at 10pm, and it looks really interesting. It follows five Muslim comedians as they do their routines and perform various places across the country, and in addition to the stand up acts they talk about their experience with prejudice in post 9/11 America.

There are some Youtube previews floating around too, and I really like this one featuring Ahmed Ahmed of “Axis of Evil Comedy Tour” fame: Preview

Looking forward to catching this Sunday night.
