Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World
January 20, 2006
Albert Brooks fans, rejoice. The comedian - who definitely appeals to a certain segment of fans in particular - will be back on the big screen in this limited release.
The film stars Brooks as a guy named...Albert Brooks. The U.S. Government send him to India and Pakistan in order to discover what is funny and laughter-inducing to the 300 million Muslims in that region. He is accompanied by his trusted assistant and two state department officials. His journey will take him to places as varied as the Taj Mahal to a concert stage in New Delhi to a secret mountain location in Pakistan. And even though he initially thinks he's uncovered the secret to making the people laugh, he soon realizes that his job is going to be far more challenging than he initially realized. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
