Once known as the “Jon Stewart of Egypt,” comedian (and heart surgeon) Bassem Youssef is now exiled to L.A., but he’s still using wit and satire to take swipes at the powers that be. He’ll perform his show The Joke is Mightier Than the Sword as part of the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (PIFA).
