Laughing in the Face of Hate – Sundance 2024 panel

This compelling fireside chat highlights the critical work of comedy for culture change. Comedians are social commentators who tackle serious societal issues with wit and courage. As hate and intolerance persist, this fireside chat brings influential comedians Dean Obeidallah and Maysoon Zayid, the co-founders of the Arab American Comedy Festival, to highlight the U.S. Arab and Muslim experience. Their sharp insights will illustrate how humor can disarm audiences through relatable stories and be a formidable force against hate.
