A Cutter And A Cut-Up: Bassem Youssef Visits


Bassem Youssef was on top of the world during and after the Arab Spring. His show on Egyptian TV was modeled after "The Daily Show" in the United States--humor and satire poking fun at the people in power.

When the people in power changed, the show became dangerous, so Youssef ended it and came to the US. He's not only a TV personality, he's a physician, and an author several times over, including a new book for kids called The Magical Reality of Nadia.

We have many questions for Bassem Youssef about his interesting and action-packed life.
