Axis of Evil Comedy Tour

I recently surprised my wife with two tickets fo the Axis of Evil Comedy tour. They were here for one night only in Seattle and I know Alia loves comedy so we decided to go (plus – it was a surprise – so I had already bought the tickets!)

Basically the Axis of Evil comedy tour is a group of four Arabs…well technically 3 Arabs and 1 Persian 🙂 I think they are all Muslim but am not sure. They are: Ahmed Ahmed, Maz Jobrani, Aron Kader, and Dean Obeidallah (Guest star). You can find more information about them and their tour here: http://www.axisofevilcomedy.com/

They make fun of being Arabs/Muslims at the current moment in the US.  It was some of the most hilarious comedy I’ve ever seen and the crowd was enjoying it too! Their shows pretty much sell out wherever they go, and judging by the attendance to this one it was also sold out! They only have two shows left, so most of you won’t be able to attend so instead you can purchase the Axis of Evil Comedy Tour DVD!

 If some of you don’t want to wait for the DVD to ship, you may wish to try the new Amazon.com Unbox service which allows you to rent or download this DVD. Try it out and tell me if it works 🙂

  1. Ali, you wrote

    “They make fun of being Arabs/Muslims at the current moment in the US.”

    I’m wondering, How is that!?

  2. See some of their shows on Youtube or even on Amazon…For example they make fun of being subject to extra “random” screening when they come to travel…someone that a lot of Arabs/Muslims can relate to.

    I wouldn’t say they are making fun of Arabs/Muslims…They just joke around about the situation that we are in right now, the racism/discrimination that some people are subject to, they make fun of Bush’s policies, etc. All the jokes were very tasteful – so don’t worry 😛

  3. If you guys like The Axis Of Evil Tour then check out my Youtube video. I have opened for them twice.
