Tickling Giants tells the story of Dr. Bassem Youssef, the “Egyptian Jon Stewart”, who decides to leave his job as a heart surgeon and become a late-night comedian. The movie is about how he finds creative, non-violent ways to protect free speech and fight a president who abuses his power. Presented in partnership with Mission Creek Festival and Hancher Auditorium.

Youssef will perform live at Hancher Auditorium on Saturday, April 7 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets and more information here.
