Thank Allah It’s Jumma

One of the nice things about starting a new job is that you actually meet new people, and one of my co-workers, Hasan Minhaj, just happens to be an actor and stand-up comedian in his spare time. His site includes “Thank Allah It’s Jumma,” a thirteen minute short film “about a Muslim growing up in America and the hilarious challenges he faces” which debuted at the 2006 ISNA Islamic Film Festival. And while I usually raise an eyebrow when people use the word hilarious to describe their own work, it really IS funny, thereby avoiding any possible awkward face-to-face time.

And yes, I totally had to look up what Jumma was on Wikipedia. What? I grew up Presbyterian.
