Comedy: Maz Jobrani at the Houston Improv
Maz Jobrani is not a terrorist, but he's played one on television and in feature films. His new book, I'm Not a Terrorist, But I've Played One on TV (scheduled for release in February 2015), chronicles his life from a child immigrant that moved from Iran to the San Francisco Bay Area when he was 6 years old peppered with witty observations about American society.
As an Iranian-American, Jobrani once wondered if he could make it in America, but now, with a resume that boasts more than 50 guest star appearances and co-founding member of Comedy Central's Axis of Evil Comedy Tour, it can safely be said that he has arrived. Also known as Hollywood's "Persian Pink Panther," Jobrani manages to successfully poke fun at some of America's hardest-hitting topics.
