‘The Muslims Are Coming!’ To Boston

What’s so funny about Muslims? Well, it depends who you’re talking about. If you’re Dean Obeidallah and Negin Farsad, two Muslim-American comedians, it turns out there’s a lot to laugh about.

Their documentary The Muslims Are Coming!  follows them and five other Muslim-American comedians across America — mostly through the deep south — performing and coming face to face with deeply ingrained anti-Muslim attitudes.

The Muslims Are Coming! opens tonight at the Somerville Theatre and plays through Thursday, October 3rd. 

Guests

Dean Obeidallah, comedian and co-director of The Muslims Are Coming!

Negin Farsad, comedian and co-director of The Muslims Are Coming!

    I wonder how this “comedy” would play or even be allowed in muslim countries? sorry cant see any humor in the countless mass murders over the past 13 years since 9/11. Attacking innocent and unarmed men women and childerd on planes, office buildings, trains, marathons and shopping malls…and we wonder why the perceptions exists to all who are alive today in this world? really? and she compares it to one canibal in the usa 30 years ago??
