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")
