Finding The Funny In Being Iranian

May 13, 2015

Maz Jobrani has used his Iranian heritage to shape his comedy, and he laughs in the face of the stereotypes he sees of Middle Eastern people.

On Wednesday's Up to Date, we talk with him about when he was asked to wear a turban on stage, what it's like to be a panelist on NPR's Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! and his Axis of Evil comedy tour.

Guest:

  • Maz Jobrani, comedian and author of I'm Not a Terrorist But I've Played One on TV
