.Bassem Youssef at The Improv

There aren’t many comedians out there who compare to the straightforward yet sharply comedic style of Jon Stewart’s years on the Daily Show, but Bassem Youssef is a rare jewel by himself. The comedian and host of El-Bernameg—a satirical news show focusing on Egyptian politics—will be at the San Jose Improv this weekend for a four-show, two-night run. If his stand-up is anything like his life thus far, it will be full of suspense, humor and heartache, with stories from his time in Egypt, being pursued by the government for his comedy, and the experience of Arabs in America.
