Bassem Youssef

Youssef’s been billed as the Jon Stewart of the Middle East and it’s true America’s favorite political satirist inspired his initial work. Eventually, he got a gig as Stewart’s senior Middle East correspondent for The Daily Show, but Youssef only needed to ride that gravy train for so long — he’s a well educated man (a cardiothoracic surgeon!) and Time named him one of the world’s most influential people in 2013. Now, he’s coming to Ann Arbor to talk about his own overwhelmingly popular political satire show, Al-Bernameg, which he canceled after being arrested and interrogated for broadcasting so-called anti-Islamic sentiments.

Starts at 7:30 p.m.; 603 E. Liberty St., Ann Arbor; 734-668-8397; ums.org; Tickets are $18 to $46.
