The Muslims Are Coming! follows a band of Muslim-American comedians as they visit big cities, small towns, rural villages, and everything in between to combat Islamophobia. These Muzzies not only perform standup at each tour stop but create ridiculous interventions in unsuspecting town squares, like the ol’ classic “Ask a Muslim” booth. Throughout the film, comedy icons like Jon Stewart, David Cross, Janeane Garofalo, Colin Quinn, Lewis Black, and Aasif Mandvi and broadcast heavyweights like Rachel Maddow, Russell Simmons, Soledad O’Brien, Ali Velshi, and The Young TurksCenk Uygur comment on the power of comedy and the political scope of bigotry. Rest assured, you’ve never laughed this hard at a Muslim!

Includes a special post-film Skype Q&A with Aron Kader, one of the actors from the film.
