What's so funny about Muslims? Well, it depends who you're talking about. If you're Dean Obeidallah and Negin Farsad, two Muslim-American comedians, it turns out there's a lot to laugh about.

Their documentary The Muslims Are Coming!  follows them and five other Muslim-American comedians across America — mostly through the deep south — performing and coming face to face with deeply ingrained anti-Muslim attitudes.

The Muslims Are Coming! opens tonight at the Somerville Theatre and plays through Thursday, October 3rd. 

Guests

Dean Obeidallah, comedian and co-director of The Muslims Are Coming!

Negin Farsad, comedian and co-director of The Muslims Are Coming!

This segment aired on September 27, 2013.
