NYC peeps, let's hit this show!
While the news from the Middle East is very upsetting, I wanted to share some positive news on the showbusiness front. Comedy Central has agreed to air on their Internet Channel "Motherload" a new show starring all Middle Eastern-American comics and performers. It's a hybrid stand up and sketch show called, "The Watch List."

Obviously, this is the first time in US history that a major American entertainment company has given us the opportunity to tell our story to our fellow Americans (through comedy that is.) Our hope is that the show goes so well, that next year we will tape a season for Comedy Central's TV network.

Please let friends in the NYC area know about this show since we need a big crowd for the taping and to impress the Comedy Central executives.

Thank you.
