I recently went to an extremely engaging event called the Sultans of Satire stand-up comedy show with chock full of witty comics of Middle Eastern descent. This hilarious show is every second Thursday of the month at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles, which is owned by Jamie Masada who is of Iranian descent. The show started in 2005 and is in it's 17th edition. This event is sponsored by the Levantine Cultural Center and was created by Jordan Elgrably, one of the founders and the artistic director of the center.
