‘Allah Made Me Funny’ Comedy Tour

Buy tickets online for Allah Made Me Funny for $35* only!
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.

SJP: Our agenda, our raison d’etre

September 2 demonstration

SJP: Our agenda, our raison d’etre

 

A kind of SJP mission statement written by Auckland SJP founder Zaeem Baksh. Feel free to disagree.

The people of Palestine, including young children are being murdered daily by the Israeli military and the Jewish squatters. The homes of the Palestinian families are bulldozed down in the middle of the night, and university buildings are destroyed. Palestinian families are routinely terrorised — their homes are occupied and their land confiscated.

Apparently, we in New Zealand don’t seem to care beyond the newspaper headlines; thus we continue, regrettably, to remain ill informed, on a healthy diet of disinformation and sleek official propaganda.  Continue reading
