Bassem Youssef, "The Joke Is Mightier Than the Sword"
Friday, January 25
The "Egyptian Jon Stewart," Youssef is a doctor who veered into social satire, creating the immensely popular and controversial "El-Bernameg (The Show)" from 2011-2015. Youssef ended up fleeing the country in the face of imprisonment for his dissent. One of Time's 100 Most Influential People and recipient of the International Press Freedom Award, Youssef's talks are hilarious and brilliant.
