Dubbed "The Egyptian Jon Stewart" Bessem Youssef created the satirical show, Al Bernameg. The weekly program quickly became the most viewed television program in the Middle East. In a country where is free speech is not settled law, Bassem's show becomes as controversial as it is popular. He and his staff must endure physical threats, protests, and legal action, all because of jokes. As Bassem attempts to remain on the air, keep his staff safe, and not get arrested, he continues to let those in power know they're being held accountable. Documentary - one day only!
