After one of our founding members with comedy experience pitched an idea to do a comedy night themed about Arabs, we began our highly popular “Arabs Are Not Funny” comedy shows. We wanted to create a safe space for comedians to smash stereotypes of Arabs in a tense political environment. We collected Arabs from our group who were willing to learn the skill of stand up comedy and later accepted non-Arabs with funny Arab experiences. We showcased our groups skills, collected donations, and had a good laugh together. It was a hit and we hope to add to it to the future.
