Film tackles Islamophobia with humor
by Patrick Gavin
Two comedians are tackling the sensitive topic of Islamophobia in the way they know best: laughter.
Negin Farsad and Dean Obeidallah are the co-directors of "The Muslims Are Coming!" which tracks a group of Muslim-American stand-ups as they perform across the country and tackle people's stereotypes.
"Around the election of Barack Obama and the controversy regarding a mosque near the World Trade Center, we were both kind of struck to the extent to which being Muslim was such an accusation," Farsad said. "And I think that it continues for some people five years later."
