Negin Farsad occupies a place at the vanguard of social justice comedy, taking on Islamophobia and bigotry with outrageous, insightful humor. In crafting her hilarious message, she draws on a bottomless repository of anecdotes from the frontlines of prejudice—and offers a prescription for how to change the discourse. The Austin Chronicle calls Negin Farsad a “master humorist who is equal parts academic and amusing”; you’ll call her a vital panacea for the Trump era. She delivers real-world activist wit with a touch of public policy reproach for a rollicking look at today’s issues.
