Bassem Youssef | Euro Tour
Dubbed the Jon Stewart of the Arab World, Egyptian heart surgeon turned world-famous political comedian, Bassem Youssef was the creator and host of the first political satire show in the Middle East and the most watched show in the Arab World with 30 million viewers each week. Throughout its three season, Al-Bernameg remained controversial for its hilarious and bold criticism of the ruling powers. During its final season in 2014, the show achieved unprecedented ratings before Youssef announced its termination due to overwhelming political pressures on the show and the airing channels. In ‘Euro Tour’ Bassem Youssef shares his unique experience as a doctor turned satirist during the most uncertain time in the Middle East. Youssef discusses the dynamics of humor, politics and search for liberties and freedoms in the Middle East. As a new resident of the United States, Youssef takes a fresh look at the factors shaping American policies in the Middle East while initiating an honest conversation with Arabs and Muslims about their role and position impacting the historic events unfolding today.
