A weekly post featuring talks by innovative thinkers, sponsored by TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design). This is what the internet was made for – to allow challenging ideas to escape from their academic ghettoes and hang out in a place where they can talk to each other.
Maz Jobrani is an Iranian-American stand-up comic, part of the Axis of Evil Comedy Tour. His work is about the absurdities and contradictions of being born in a country widely regarded as evil, while living as an American citizen. He’s funny, astute, and you should watch this because he blows away all the stereotypes.
