Iranian, Muslim, Arab-American Comedians Join Forces for One Night of Politically Charged Stand-up Comedy on Sunday, March 4 in New York City


New York, NY (PRWEB) February 20, 2007 -- Join some of top Arab, Muslim and Iranian-American comedians from Comedy Central's critically acclaimed Internet show "The Watch List" for a night of edgy comedy on Sunday, March 4 in New York City. If you want to laugh and find out what's really going on in the Middle East, then check out this unique stand up comedy show.

This live comedy show features some of the country's top Middle Eastern-American comics including Maysoon Zayid (MTV), Dean Obeidallah (Comedy Central), Seena Jon (CNN's "Inside the Middle East"), Ronnie Khalil (MTV), Negin Farsad (Wall Street Journal), Maria Shehata (Sirius radio), Joe Derosa (NBC's "Last Call"), Nasry Malak (ABC's "20/20) and more.

"The show is not only funny, but it will help our fellow Americans understand a little about more about who Middle Easterners really are and what's going on the Middle East," notes comedian Dean Obeidallah who is also the co-producer of "The Watch List."

"The show will definitely dispel the misconception that Arabs, Iranians and Muslims can not be funny," added comedian Maysoon Zayid.

"The Watch List," which is available exclusively on Comedy Central's Internet channel Motherload, was co-created by comedian Dean Obeidallah and Emmy award winning comedy writer, Max Brooks. The Watch List is the first show ever released by a major American entertainment company starring all Middle Eastern-American comedians and is available now at http://www.comedycentral.com/shows/watch_list/index.jhtml. See what the critics have been saying about this groundbreaking new show:

"Their routines are politically charged enough to make people uncomfortable, but they're true enough to be understood -- and for both reasons, they're hilarious."††††
Associated Press

"The show's mix of stand-up and sketch comedy, which debuted this week, has a raw YouTube appeal, yet the humor here is anything but amateur."
Newsweek

"And unlike similar endeavors (like, say, the movie "Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World"), this one is actually funny."
The Forward

Date: Sunday, March 4, 2007
