NY Arab-American Comedy Festival

From Electronic Intifada:

AronkadercomedyThe three nights of sketch comedy will be presented for the first time ever by the critically acclaimed and award winning Theater for the New City (Crystal Field, Executive Artistic Director). The stand-up comedy shows will be held at the new Gotham Comedy Club, home of Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, and the short comedic film night will be held at the Pioneer Theater.

Festival organizers vow that no topic is off-limits as the theater pieces comedically tackle such topics as the perception of Muslims in America, the Bush administration, an infomercial on “How to be a real American” and even an Arab Superhero.
