About the Author
Bassem Youssef, a.k.a. the Jon Stewart of the Arab World, was a heart surgeon in his home country of Egypt before becoming the host of AlBernameg, the first political satire show in the Middle East. He has appeared on The Daily Show, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and other late-night shows, and was also featured in TIME 100, Time magazine's list of the 100 most influential people in the world. He lives in Los Angeles with his family.
Reviews

"Hilarious and Heartbreaking. Comedy shouldn't take courage, but it made an exception for Bassem." -- Jon Stewart

"A smart, refreshing and hilariously funny account." -- Salon.com

"An entertaining and eminently readable book about a Middle Eastern country written for Americans. If you have been bluffing your way through political conversations pretending to know the differences between Islamists and secular Muslims, Youssef's book is an easy, painless way to rectify that error." -- The Ringer

If you want to understand the Arab Spring-even though it was really the African Spring, set off by a 'small puny motherfucking country called Tunisia'-then this odd book is just the guide. -- Kirkus Reviews
