The Cold War changed standup comedy. While the world slowly recovered from WWII, political fears in America grew to a fevered pitch. Then something funny happened: standup evolved from joke telling to truth telling. Jewish and black comedians proved that comedy could transform public perception, while exposing the absurd phobias about America's marginalized and misunderstood. AMERICA'S LEAST WANTED is a reflection of the times. Starring some of America's top Muslim standup comics, the show employs the power of humor to expose our collective fears and hypocrisies, and to help us laugh at ourselves.
