Special Guest Yashar Kafi
With his dry, deadpan delivery, Iranian born comedian Yashar Kafi wields stereotypes of gender, race, nationality, and religion, not only in their classic senses but in their current mass cultural paradigms as well. He affirms many modern views to be correct and others to be ridiculous, calling into question the way we have come to look down on certain groups in this new generation, as well as lampooning the bigotry of the past. Yashar’s unabashed honesty is what disarms his audiences and holds them captive with a broader understanding of what truly makes America great. He will leave you laughing and wanting to cry at the same time – you’d be sorry to miss this show.
