Episode #91: Maz Jobrani

Maz Jobrani has his first starring movie out now called Jimmy Vestvood: Amerikan Hero, which he co-wrote and co-produced and calls “The Persian Pink Panther meets Borat.” He already has three Showtime comedy specials out, the latest one also the title of his best-selling book of 2015, I’m Not a Terrorist, But I’ve Played One On TV: Memoirs of a Middle Eastern Funny Man. But first, he had to convince his parents he wouldn’t be a lawyer, convince his girlfriend he could make a go at comedy, and learn hang gliding in Mexico?

So let’s get to it!
