Revolution for Dummies

Laughing through the Arab Spring

The 2011 Revolution in Egypt was responsible for the overthrow of the thirty-year Mubarak reign in just eighteen days; Bassem Youssef, Egypt's most famous satirist, not only captured this dissent but stamped it with his own brand of humorous political criticism, in which the Egyptian government became the prime laughing stock.
Portrait
Bassem Youssef, dubbed the Jon Stewart of the Arab World, was the host of popular TV show Al-Bernameg, which was the first of its kind political satire show in the Middle East region. Originally an online 5-minute show, Al-Bernameg became the most watched show in the history of Egyptian TV with an average of 40 million viewers every week, in addition to over 2 million subscribers on YouTube and 1.2 billion views on Bassem Youssef's own channel. In June 2014, the Al-Bernameg team held a press conference where Youssef announced the termination of the show due to pressure on the show and its channel about its incisive commentary and criticism of the Egyptian government and military. Although the real cause was ambiguous and never stated directly, Youssef cited fear for his personal safety and his family's safety as strong reasons for him to stop. Bassem is currently preparing for a digital series with Fusion TV called "The Democracy Handbook" where he is satirizing American politics through a Middle Eastern perspective. A documentary about Bassem's life is due to premiere in Tribeca Film Festival in April 2016. He now lives in the United States.
