The M Word: Muslim-American Comedians on the Right to Joke

With a pressing need to address growing Islamophobia, comedians like Aziz Ansari, who recently penned a New York Times Op Ed to address Donald Trump’s proposal for a ban on Muslim immigrants, have stepped into the public conversation to denounce how racial and religious discrimination is eating away at the fundamental rights afforded to all American citizens by the Constitution. PEN America invites a stellar cast of comedians to take center stage at Joe’s Pub at The Public for a special evening, Muslim-Americans on the Right to Joke, the first installment of The M Word.

Tickets available here: $30 General Admission/$24 for PEN Members
