Allah Made Me Funny

Well, no, not me personally. Nothing against Allah, I'm just not that funny. Fortunately, Preacher Moss is... so funny in fact that he's on the road with the The Official Muslim Comedy Tour. I admit, I don't know who deemed it "official," but maybe that's part of the joke.

Like Swami Beyondananda, Preacher Moss apparently has the confidence and wisdom to believe that if we don't laugh, we'll end up crying. That and the desire to dispel misconceptions (like: Muslims are all humorless extremists) and present a different face of Islam. Touring with Moss are Azhar "The Ayatollah of Comedy" Usman, and Azeem. They're at Bellevue's Maydenbauer Center (11100 NE 6th Street) on Sunday Oct. 2 at 3pm and 6pm. more details here.

Spin the Globe radio show will feature an interview with Preacher Moss Friday Sept. 30 around 11:00 a.m. (Pacific time). Catch it on KAOS 89.3fm or via live webstream at kaosradio.org

By the way, I just ran across a Muslim news site that may bend those entrenched stereotypes of Muslims that your friends may have (certainly not you!). Check out alt.muslim ("member, axis of good")
