Tickling Giants

A film about Bassem Youssef, who is inspired by Jon Stewart’s Daily Show to set up a satirical comedy show in the period between the military dictatorships of Mubarak and El-Sisi. The guy’s really funny and so is the film, it makes me want to see more of his stuff. While the events in Egypt might make for a disappointing context, the film is in fact hopeful, with a message of make a difference where you can, when you can.
