Bassem Youssef: The Joke Is Mightier Than the Sword
Leave it to a surgeon-turned-satirist to expertly diagnose what ails our modern political climate -- and to make you laugh the entire time. Dubbed the "Jon Stewart of Egypt," Bassem Youssef created the first political satire show in the Middle East, Al Bernameg (The Show), after realizing that "satire brings awareness and breaks down taboos," as he once told Rolling Stone. Since then, Youssef has become a star on TV and YouTube, and was recently named one of Time's "100 Most Influential People in the World." In The Joke Is Mightier Than the Sword, Bassem shares his personal story along with his thoughts on the political climate that led to the Arab Spring, its parallels to the current state of American politics, and how propaganda lays the foundation for dictatorial regimes. He'll share his unique perspective and biting wit at Kimmel Center's Verizon Hall in Philadelphia.
