PBS documentary special on the trials and tribulations of muslim american comics in america, highlighting their concerns about perception and what type of subject matter they go into...as well as trying to be accepted on a larger scale...llooks pretty interesting from what i can tell...ive actually seen some of these comedians before and they were pretty damn funny.
