Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars
This elegantly straightforward stand-up concert film offers three comics’ take on what it means to be a Muslim American. Mohammed Amer shares stories of his Palestinian mother smearing olive oil, believed to be a cure-all, over his face. Preacher Moss admits no one understood what Ramadan signified other than fasting, so the stocky comedian “should Ramadan a lot.” Azhar Usman, though, is the highlight, presenting thoughtful arguments about how Muslims and Jews have more in common than they know. Stand-up with a point? How simple the sound.
