Sultans of Satire at the Barclay Theatre

"Samar and I are still laughing! Thanks for inviting us to Sultans of Satire. We laughed hardest at the bit regarding the father who loses patience with his son, rather than teaching him how to use tools correctly. (My rather administrator-style description is not funny, but our young man—the Jordanian comedian Mike Batayeh— sure drove home the contrast between the American father’s coaching and the Middle Eastern father’s expecting that no coaching is necessary. We have been witnesses to that phenomenon.)" — Barbara Al-Bayati
