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.

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

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.

While the concept is stimulating, there's actually too little political comedy here, as most yucks center on traditional men-vs.-women, my-funny-family material of middling inspiration.
