Movie Info

Executive producer Dave Chappelle brings together three of the best comics in the Muslim world for the Official Muslim Comedy Tour, offering Preacher Moss, Azhar Usman, Mohammed Amer, and others the chance to prove that Albert Brooks might have made a few oversights while he was Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

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

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.

The package is a friendly, if lackluster, affair...

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.

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

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.

Timely if perfunctory.

The performers are amiable, but the material is only mildly amusing.

A trio of Muslim Rodney Dangerfields complaining about not getting any respect on account of their religion.

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

The title of this well-intentioned movie ought to have been, Allah Made Me "Occasionally" Funny: Live in Concert.

a pleasant and amusing ode to banality.

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.
