Muslim American comics' tour and documentary
by Tara Bahrampour
Beware, America. The Muslims are coming, and they look and act suspiciously like you.
Negin Farsad, an Iranian American stand-up comic from California, wears eye-catching mini dresses, curses liberally and has awkward sex talks with her mother (though hers sound more like alien encounters. Actual quote: "You had intergender flesh relations without the security of external safety product?").
Such conversations, painfully private in traditional Muslim societies, are public fodder for Farsad and three other Gen X and Gen Y Muslim comics with whom she traveled to the deep South this past summer.
