Salam Alaykum everybody!" Muslim American comedian Omar Regan shouts. "This is Funatical comedy tour! Everybody, we gonna take over the world!"

The name of the show says it all. "Funatical" makes fun of the stereotype of Muslims as religious fanatics.

America is a nation of immigrants who have enriched this country's culture, especially the arts, including comedy. Now Muslim American comics are getting into the act.

Recently, Funatical brought a group of mostly Muslim comics to a theater in the Washington suburb of Arlington, Virginia.
