"The Muslims are Coming"

Humor as a Tool for Conflict Resolution

Published on 23 April 2012

Type:  Movie

Will the recent Congressional hearings signaling out Muslim-Americans make it even worse? Is there anything that can be done to counter the hate?

A group of Muslim-American standup comedians go on the road counter Islamophobia using the only weapon they have: jokes. The Muslims Are Coming! follows these comics as they visit big cities, rural villages, and everything in between to do shows, meet locals, and counter the haters.

Commentary from pop culture icons like the Daily Show’s Jon Stewart, Rachel Maddow, Janeane Garofalo, CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, David Cross, and Lewis Black pepper the film as the comedians travel through middle America. Will audiences laugh? Will they make a difference? Will they make it back? Rest assured, you’ve never laughed this hard at a Muslim!
