12 November, Auckland – Aotea Centre, The Edge

The stand-up comedy show Allah Made Me Funny is finally coming to New Zealand.

After their raging success in North America and the United Kingdom, American Muslim stand-up comedians Preacher Moss and Azhar Usman are sure to have Australian audiences laughing loud and thinking hard.

In the great American tradition of maligned communities finding their voice through stand-up, Allah Made Me Funny counters the negative stereotypes and attitudes about Muslims and Arabs by poking fun at themselves, their communities and the prejudices they face.

THE OFFICIAL MUSLIM COMEDY TOUR

“One of the unexpected consequences of the 9/11 attacks in the United States is an upsurge in humour by and about Muslims, which has begun to be enjoyed by a wider American audience.” – BBC

Stand-up comedy show fresh out of the States, Allah Made Me Funny: The Official Muslim Comedy Tour is sure to have audiences in New Zealand and Australia laughing out loud and thinking hard.

What the founders of this comedy tour have come up with, is a very tasteful way to counter the negative stereotypes and attitudes about Muslims and Arabs by poking fun at themselves, their communities and the prejudices they face.

As a writer for George Lopez Show, Damon Wayans’ Show and Saturday Night Live, Preacher Moss’ comedy stylings are sculpted from the everyday relevance of life and the glimpses of truth we value as reality and always find funny.

Azhar, a successful entrepreneur, lawyer, and community activist, on the other hand has developed a unique act based on transethnic and intercultural issues, keen and witty insights, and general observational humour.
