Bassem Youssef joins executive producer Steve Bodow and senior producer Sara Taksler for a conversation about how The Daily Show inspired Bassem to create Al-Bernameg, his massively popular (and now banned) Egyptian news satire program. Sara discusses her soon-to-be-released documentary, Tickling Giants, which chronicles how Bassem and his staff risked their safety every day to tell jokes.
