Messed up Logic to "Iranian in west Paris"

by farzad1 (not verified) on

So just because he jokes about middle easterns you lable him as a Islam hater. What kind of conclusion is that? You are lost and a messed up retard.


He used to be funny


but he is become very predictable saying the same lines for many years now.  He must freshen up, there is so much you can squeeze out of one lemon.


This is very funny

> not funny

by Another Lost Iranian in west Paris (not verified) on

This guy is not funny. seriously, the only thing that makes him "unique" is his LOUD voice. All he does is to scream and shout like a lunatic.

He clearly plays on major western stereotypes about Iranians and middle easterns, and that is embarrasing. I'm not sure but I feel some sort of hate towards muslim his his plays, knowing that he's Bahai ... (I hope the Bahai lobby on will not simply delete my comment because of this)

Maz Jobrani is really funny on the other hand.

If you watch the whole show, you will see that his sketches stretch beyond his 'Middle Eastern schtick.'

Somebody Find This Guy a Writer

by Nader Vanaki on

His Middle Eastern schtick will tank out very soon.  There is so much you can poke fun at your own culture and then you have to move on to another job like Yakov Smirnov 20 years ago.  His schtick was making fun at Russians and his reign lasted for only a couple of years.

He better find himself a couple of writers since this material is already damped and he is surviving with the help of a laughing track.  I don't see this lasting more than 1/2 a season.
