What happens when you take a group of Muslim-American comedians on the road across America? You end up on a mission to change hearts and minds, albeit with humor.
Comedians Negin Farsad & Dean Obeidallah have often addressed cultural issues in their comedy, but now they've upped the ante by making a documentary road film on the subject. If the trailer is any indication, it promises to be an eye-opening and hilarious experience.
The description for the YouTube version of the trailer, sums the film up best:
A group of Muslim-American standup comedians go on the road counter Islamophobia using the only weapon they have: jokes. The Muslims Are Coming! follows these comics as they visit big cities, rural villages, and everything in between to do shows, meet locals, and counter the haters. Commentary from pop culture icons like the Daily Show's Jon Stewart, Rachel Maddow, Janeane Garofalo, CNN's Soledad O'Brien, David Cross, and Lewis Black pepper the film as the comedians travel through middle America.
