Farsad is a regular panelist for NPR’s weekly current events program “Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me” and Neil deGrasse Tyson’s “Star Talk.” In her feature film, “The Muslims Are Coming!,” she took a group of Muslim-American comedians on the road in Middle America to do shows, meet the locals and counter Islamophobia through jokes. The film features Jon Stewart, Lewis Black, Janeane Garofolo, David Cross and Rachel Maddow among other luminaries, and won a humanitarian award from the Arab American Institute. Farsad’s first book, “How to Make White People Laugh,” was called “frank and hilarious” by Salon.
Copies of her book will be on sale for the author to sign.
