Humour pour la Paix/ Ahmed Al Basheer

More information

Making fun of the enemy is the best way of defeating them", Ahmed Albasheer War, terror, corruption, and the use of religion have become the playgrounds of the thirty-year-old Iraqi comedian. Forever marked by a suicide attack on February 24th, 2011, in the heart of his hometown of Ramadi, 100 km from Baghdad, where he was spared but which cost the lives of seven of his colleagues, neighbors and friends, Ahmed Albasheer vowed to engage in a battle against obscurantism, using the sharp edge of humor, biting parody and media power. Today Albasheer Show is one of the most successful comic productions of the Arab world, and without a shadow of a doubt, the most radical. Relocated in the Jordanian capital since 2012 to regain the freedom to criticize political power that does not hesitate to persecute and imprison critics, Ahmed Albasheer is fighting for a liberal Iraq, without terror or violence, where different faiths - Christians, Kurds Sunni and Shi'ite - could live in plurality. A certain vision of living together that the activist comedian will defend at neimënster for his very first one-man show during the Humor for Peace festival. Organization: neimënster
