The task: Jeselnik is to make us laugh.
The audience: MPV community members
The show: “The Jeselnik Offensive” and it airs on Comedy Central. They are in production on their second season. The piece they would love to have us involved in is called “Sacred Cow: Islam.”
"Sacred Cow" is a segment within the show and it is dark and sarcastic, border-line mean but not demeaning, on subject matters deemed off-limits thus the title "sacred cow".
I think it would be a game-changer for us to be able to laugh at ourselves. It would change the perception of us Muslims as, well...humorless. Here's an example of a segment:
Location is being confirmed so in the meantime please mark this in your calender and let's pack in and have fun!
Sorry for the nerdiness, "Be there or be square!"
