The Bedminster Democrats and Friends are proud to present Mehul Shah, Professor of Philosophy at BCCC, as he hosts a screening of Tickling Giants. The feature length documentary follows the controversial Egyptian comedian Bassem Yousef who is known as the “Egyptian John Stewart”. His show, “Al Bernameg” has 30 million weekly viewers and has raised so much controversy that Yousef and his team are frequently the targets of violence. The documentary studies the effects of oppressed free speech and how political oppression can be effectively fought with comedy.
