Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World (DVD) (WS)

A nation called out in its time of need. Albert Brooks answered. Yes, he would venture into India and Pakistan on a top assignment for the USA. Yes, he would see if comedy could achieve what diplomacy and power has not – make the region’s 300-million Muslims like us. And, yes, he ignites war in the process. Acclaimed filmmaker Brooks (Lost in America, Mother) writes and directs this observant and slyly hilarious culture clash. Is laughter the best medicine for an ailing world? Find out as Brooks pokes fun at his own preconceived notions in events ranging from a fish-out-of-Ganges stand-up gig to a meeting with Al Jazeera honchos to a blindfolded trip into the unknown territory of...Pakistani comedians. Want comedy? Look no further.
