Allah Made Me Funny: The Official Muslim Comedy Tour is finally coming to New Zealand and Australia. After their raging success in North America and the United Kingdom, American Muslim stand-up comedians Preacher Moss and Azhar Usman are bringing their show to New Zealand and Australian audiences in November, and are sure to have them laughing out loud and thinking hard.

In the great American tradition of maligned communities finding their voice through stand-up, Azhar Usman and Preacher Moss confront stereotypes about Muslims and Arabs by poking fun at themselves, their communities and the prejudices they face in a show that has been profiled in The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age in Australia, and major media outlets worldwide such as BBC, Washington Post, Newsweek, Fox News, and CBS News.

As a writer for the George Lopez Show, Damon Wayans Show and Saturday Night Live, Preacher Moss is a veteran of the industry, likened by The Seattle Times to American comedy legend Dick Gregory. His comedy stylings are sculpted from the everyday relevance of life and the glimpses of truth we value as reality and always find funny.


Azhar, a successful entrepreneur, lawyer, and community activist, on the other hand has developed a unique act based on transethnic and intercultural issues, keen and witty insights, and general observational humour.

“One of the unexpected consequences of the 9/11 attacks in the United States is an upsurge in humour by and about Muslims, which has begun to be enjoyed by a wider American audience.” - BBC


The “Allah Made Me Funny” stand-up comedy show is an attempt by a group of American Muslim comics (Preacher Moss, Azeem and Azhar Usman) to counter the negative stereotypes and attitudes about Muslims and Arabs by poking fun at themselves, their communities and the prejudices they face. Read more


“The concept of this tour is to make a comprehensive effort to provide effective, significant, and appropriate comedy with an Islamic perspective, which is both mainstream and cross-cultural.


The idea is to provide a venue whereby Muslims and non-Muslims can feel safe, relevant, and inclusive of an experience where humour is used to bridge gaps of bias, intolerance, and other social ills that are pre and post 9/11 relevant,” says Preacher Moss, co-founder, and one of the featured comedians on the tour.
