Stand-up with a point? How simple the sound.

The jokes are clean, and definitely ecumenical, Jews and Christians and Muslims getting together. It's a good message, but a bit safe for the anarchic spirit of true comedy.

The whole thing is like an HBO comedy special -- Allah made these guys pretty funny -- and it's hard to see why it's getting theatrical release.

A performance documentary with a tiny budget and a big spirit that follows three comics as they travel the country looking for laughs and understanding.

It's hit-and-miss. But Allah Made Me Funny: Live in Concert is a film that doesn't let go from the very first moment.

The jokes are tepid and generic, better suited to late-night Comedy Central than the big screen.

Allah may have made these men funny, but he didn't bestow much in the way of filmmaking skills.

It has the potential to be culturally bridging in its way, and that makes looking for Muslim comedy in the Western world worthwhile.

Between the sets, director Andrea Kalin generates some pleasant material by following the comics around in their private lives.

The routines are so clean they could have played on the Ed Sullivan show in the '50s -- which is refreshing and so old it seems new.
