Presented by Riot Act Entertainment.
"The concept of this tour is to make a comprehensive effort to provide effective, significant, and appropriate comedy with an Islamic perspective, which is both mainstream and cross-cultural. The idea is to provide a venue whereby Muslims and non-Muslims Allah Made Me Funny: The Official Muslim Comedy Tour can feel safe, relevant, and inclusive of an experience where humor is used to bridge gaps of bias, intolerance, and other social ills that are pre and post 9/11 relevant," says Preacher Moss, co-founder, and one of the featured comedians on the tour.
Reflecting the diversity of the Islamic religion, as well as the diversity of this country, Azhar Usman, Preacher Moss, and Azeem Muhammad, a rising comedy star, have put down ego and pride to show the world a cooperation rarely seen in comedy. Through their commitment, they've brokered "a project built not on competition, but a coalition." Says Moss, "We have a community tour designed to see not only the Muslim community grow, and be self-actualized, but to see the world community attain the same goals. This is done through dialogue, understanding" and humor as the glue that heals us all.
