Currently in exile from his home country Egypt, comedian and activist Bassem Youssef will appear at Tilles Center on Thursday, September 28. A former heart-surgeon and pioneer of political satire in Arabic, Youssef has reinvented himself as an English-speaking stand-up comic. How did he get here? In 2011, when millions of people in Egypt took to the streets and demanded the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak, Youssef used his medical skills and took action by going to Tahrir Square, where he helped treat wounded protestors. State propaganda blamed the protests on foreign operatives. Frustrated with the state media portrayal of protestors during the uprising, Youssef began recording short satirical YouTube videos from his laundry room to ridicule government propaganda. He showed snippets of state news broadcasts to which he added satirical commentary. What Youssef hoped would garner a few thousand views turned into millions! He was given his own program on which he could continue to parody news reporters, as well as Egyptian celebrities and politicians. In Egypt, his brand of comedy was groundbreaking… and put a target on his back. He fled Egypt, made a home here in the US, and started his career as a stand-up comic. This will be stand-up like you’ve never experienced before 🎙 Tickets go on sale Friday, May 12! . . . . #BassemYoussef #StandUpComedy #StandUpComedian #ComedyShow #EgyptianComedy #Egypt #ComedyNight #TillesCenter #TillesCenterForThePerformingArts #LIUPost #LIU #LongIslandUniversity #LongIsland #DiscoverLI #DiscoverLongIsland #PerformingArts #ThingsToDoOnLongIsland
