'Axis of Evil' Comedy Tour at Tiburon International Film Festival

 
Tiburon - CA - The Tiburon International Film Festival will celebrate its 6th annual event from March 22 to March 30, 2007 with over 250 films from 90 countries, with a new film addition:
 
'Axis of Evil' Comedy Tour
 
Year:  2007
Running Time:  73 minutes
Country:  USA
Cast:  Ahmed Ahmed, Aron Kader, Maz Jobrani, Dean Obeidallah
Director:  Mike Simon


Description:  In a time when East and West do not seem to understand each other, top stand-up comics of Middle Eastern descent Ahmed Ahmed, Aron Kader, and Maz Jobrani take it upon themselves to single-handedly bridge the gap with an original comedy tour that has become one of the hottest concert tickets in the country.

Special guest Dean Obeidallah who's a co-founder of the New York Arab-American Comedy Festival, joins the "Axis of Evil" creators for this sold-out, no-holds-barred event that has made headlines everywhere from CNN to Newsweek.

Nothing is off limits. Whether it's a gay terrorist or the difficulty of flying post-9/11 America, THE AXIS OF EVIL COMEDY TOUR blasts stereotypes with outrageous humor.

"They are doing for Middle Easterners what Richard Pryor did for African-Americans - carrying their culture into the mainstream." - Newsweek
