Take a feather and tickle a giant in the foot.  It’s a risk.  Will the giant laugh or stomp on you?

Tickling Giants tells the story of Dr. Bassem Youssef, the “Egyptian Jon Stewart”, who decides to leave his job as a heart surgeon and become a late-night comedian. The movie is about how he finds creative, non-violent ways to protect free speech and fight a president who abuses his power.

Youssef’s show was a force of nature.  30 million people in Egypt watched each episode. By comparison, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart averaged about two million viewers a night.
