On August 15, 2008 local Arab-American actors, actresses, and comedians will take the stage at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center in an effort to humanize the Arab experience through comedy.

The evening includes sketch comedy and short films, written, produced, directed, and performed by Arab-Americans. “As a community oriented company, we are proud to be the presenter of this show which has been designed to build bridges among the various communities and demystify stereotypes surrounding Arab-Americans” Sonny Mandouh, Co-Producer of the show.

The show features an ensemble of local actors, including Dearborn’s own Brian Mosallam. The Saturday Night Live-inspired sketches range in theme from “Samia’s Cup”, a coffee shop that dares to only sell Arabic ahewah (coffee) to an Arab-American woman and her white husband hosting her very traditional Arab family for dinner in “Living It Up,” a sequel to one of last years favorite sketches.
The evening will also feature a short film spoof similar to last year’s award-winning short “CRIBZ.”

Friday, August 15h at 7pm eighteen actors will take the stage to make a full house laugh and think about life in America from an Arab-American perspective. “The show promises to be accessible to both Arabs and Non-Arabs alike; our hope is to show Arab American culture for all of its richness, beauty, and hilarity.” Mike Mosallam, Producer & Artistic Director of the show.
