Watch Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World
- 1 hr 38 min
Jewish-American comedian Albert Brooks is sent by the US government on a mission to India and Pakistan to find out what Muslim audiences find funny. Brooks is tasked with writing a 500 page report on his findings at the end of his trip and sets to work talking to audiences and comedians alike to gather material for it. He finds he is met with suspicion by many, who suspect he might be a spy, and things get increasingly complicated after he is denied a visa to enter Pakistan.
