Allah Made Me Funny

CBC News ran an interesting story about Allah Made Me Funny, the official Muslim stand-up comedy tour. Among the objectives of the tour are to address social issues and biases in the context of humour. As pointed out by the CBC report, Muslims in the post-9/11 (North-)American world are often connected to terrorism, suicide bombings, and war. It is encouraging to see that something positive is growing out of this environment of prejudice.

The tour will come to Boston eventually, but no specific dates have been announced.
