Growth Quotes From Bassem Youssef 

I chose the   Egyptian dream: the dream to make a TV show, and then be called an infidel by   the end.

Theocratic and   military authorities share one thing: they have no sense of humour.

We have dealt with   the Arab/Muslim problem in the American media in every single way but through   comedy. Hollywood has always been laggaing behind comedy... We can make fun of   ourselves, too, and I'm inviting us to laugh with us - and all the   misconceptions.

I do think that   this planet is a totally unjust planet. I mean throughout history - history   paints a beautiful picture when it's written by the victorious, but it's a   planet that belongs to the strong and the more able, and usually they are   tyrants. So basically, I don't see justice happening to the crushed and the   weak.

I get very   confused about being called a comedian, because when you say 'I'm a   comedian,' people expect you to crack a joke. Maybe I use laughter and humour   to make people think. I don't know what you call that - a humourist? A   satirist? A pessimistic comedian? I don't know. Satirists can be very dark.

The Dark Satirist,   like the Dark Knight - that could be a good name for a superhero.
