Join us for a night of laughter and insight from two vital observers of the Middle East. Dr. Bassem Youssef, Egyptian satirist and former host of Al-Bernameg (The Program), inspired by The Daily Show, was named one of Time’s "100 most influential people in the world” in 2013. Rula Jebreal is an award-winning journalist, a foreign-policy analyst appearing frequently on CNN and MSNBC, and the author of Miral.
