Negin Farsad: Fighting Islamophobia, Bigotry and W...

Presented by Harbison Theatre at Midlands Technical College at Harbison Theatre

Star of her own brand of “social justice comedy,” Negin Farsad is not afraid to ask the tough questions — or to make her audience laugh just as hard as they’re thinking. An Iranian-American Muslim comedian who tackles prejudice head-on and hilariously, this TED Senior Fellow is also a fearless filmmaker and actor who has written for MTV, PBS, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central and more. In this engaging talk, Farsad will explore how she approaches race, religion and culture through comedy — and how we can chuckle our way to common ground. Recommended for teens and older.
