Comedian Bassem Youssef, dubbed the Jon Stewart of the Arab World, was the host of popular TV show Al-Bernameg – which was the first of its kind political satire show in the Middle East. Originally a five-minute show on YouTube, Al-Bernameg became the first online to TV conversion in the Middle East and the most watched show across the region with 30 million viewers every week.

The physician-turned-comedian and critic now lives in the United States, where he continues to shine a light on global issues with thoughtful, hilarious commentary.
