Tickling Giants

Director: Sara Taksler

USA 2017

In Tickling Giants, the director follows Bassem Youssef who, in the midst of the Egyptian Arab Spring, changed his career from heart surgeon to full-time comedian. In a country where freedom of speech is increasingly restricted with each regime change, Youssef and his courageous staff of young writers develop creative ways to non-violently challenge abuses of power. Enduring physical threats, protests, and legal action, they test how far they can take the joke.
