A film about how the US Government assigns comedian Albert Brooks to find out what makes the Muslim People laugh in an attempt to better understand them.
Which raises an interesting point my brother pointed out; why are all molvi's always so serious? We have no comedy to speak of. I dont know how true that is, but off hand i cant name a Muslim Comedian. But i dont necessarily believe or wish to believe that its possible to be religious and have a decent sense of humour.
But if i think about it, i cant also name any occurance or mention of comedy in regads to Islam... so what is the Islamic view on Comedy?
Is it something frowned upon to be religious and funny? Or is it a good thing that you can be religious but also have a sense of humour about it.
Is it possible to be funny without having to curse or resort to taking the mick out of Islam?
