Stand-up comedy in the Middle East? There's nothing funny there. Ohhhh! Not true! It may be young, but it is vibrant. The stand-up comedy scenes in Dubai, Beirut, Nazareth, Cairo and Ramallah are being overrun by Arabs and Persians from Australia, the US and UK, and it is a no holds barred laugh fest. And when the local comedians take on the challenge, the issues surrounding the Middle East put it all in perspective. It's peace with a punchline!
