In the same style as Comedy Central's John Stewart or HBO's Bill Maher, Baba Ali cuts through the muck of grandstanding and politicizing issues by simply telling it like it is. But instead of mocking Islam, he uses a comical approach that hits the mark with almost every viewer, without using any offensive material.
The sharp-witted style takes a realistic look at the everyday issues Muslims are confronted with, including being a Muslim teen in America, attending Muslim weddings, and dealing with cultural issues that have impacted Muslims.
"In my opinion, Islam is the most misunderstood religion around," said Ali. "Not just by non-Muslims, but by Muslims as well."
Being in high demand, Baba Ali has been traveling the world doing stand-up to a wide range of Muslim and non-Muslim audiences. He has spent the past two years traveling to over 30 cities and has performed all over the US, UK and Canada. Performing for audiences as large as 37,000 and for all ages including youth as young as nine, Ali has received rave reviews in the NY Times, USA Today and the LA Times as well as been featured in seven episodes of Direct TV's "The Fizz News."
What started out as simple YouTube blog has turned into something that people all over the world are ready to hear more about, giving Ali the opportunity to travel all over the world to perform his rare one-of-a-kind stand-up.
