“Tickling Giants” – an eye-opening documentary directed by Sara Taksler.
Taksler recounts Bassem Youssef’s journey. A man who was a renowned heart surgeon in Egypt. He quit surgery to host his own satirical/comedy talk show, was then hailed “the Egyptian Jon Stewart” and through it all, had to escape Egypt and seek exile in America. The reason being, his opinions and views did not sit well (at all) with the Egyptian authorities.
