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

Allah Made Me Funny: Live in Concert, from comedy material written and performed by Mohammed 'Mo' Amer, Bryant 'Preacher' Moss and Azhar Usman, strives to be both timely and funny as it confronts the problems of American Muslims in America after 9/11.

In the end, while the humor is at times bit uneven, Allah Made Me Funny achieves its goal of breaking down stereotypes with a tongue-in-cheek grace.
