Comedy film ‘The Muslims Are Coming!’ tackles Islamophobia

Comedians and film co-directors Negin Farsad and Dean Obeidallah are taking on one of present-day politics’ most sensitive subjects head-on, hoping laughter really can overcome all — including Islamophobia.

They’re co-directors of “The Muslims Are Coming!” The movie basically tracks Muslim-American stand-up comics as they appear and perform in venues around the nation, in the face of sometimes harsh stereotypes.
