It’s September 11th, so I guess this is as good a time as any to let you know that The Muslims are Coming!
And they want you to die!
Ummm…I mean, they want you to die laughing. You know…figuratively.
Here’s the deal:
The Muslims Are Coming! is an independent comedy film that hits back against Islamophobia. It will be in Seattle theaters for a one week run starting tomorrow (Friday).
Here is the blurb:
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!
And here is the trailer:
The film is playing at the Grand Illusion Cinema. Tickets are available here.
