Summary
Bassem Youssef recounts his life and offers hysterical riffs on the hypocrisy, instability, and corruption that has long animated Egyptian politics. From the attempted cover-up of the violent clashes in Tahrir Square to the government's announcement that it had created the world's first 'AIDS cure' machine, to the conviction of officials that Youssef was a CIA operative, recruited by Jon Stewart, to bring down the country through sarcasm. There's much more, and it's all insanely true
Summary
The creator of Egypt's popular incendiary news lampoon, The Program, chronicles his transition from heart surgeon to political satirist while sharing crucial insights into the Arab Spring, the Egyptian Revolution and the turbulence of the modern Middle East
