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 5-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.

Named one of Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” in 2013, 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.
