“The Muslims Are Coming!” trailer: Muslim-American comics combat Islamaphobia

The Muslims Are Coming! is a new documentary from comics Negin Farsad and Dean Obeidallah. It follows the two on tour, along with other Muslim American comedians, as they put on free shows across the country and shed some light on the anti-Muslim undercurrents that still permeates through the political discourse. The film also features perspectives from great comics and non-comics like Jon Stewart, Lewis Black, Rachel Maddow, Janeane Garofalo, and CNN’s Soledad O’Brien. Like many other awesome comedy ventures today, The Muslims Are Coming! is crowd-supported and still needs some financial love to complete the project. Watch the trailer below.
