Maysoon Zayid is an inspiring woman, but I guess I needed to brush up on my Palestinian-dialect Arabic to understand much of her act. I probably should have expected a little 3rabiya at a Palestinian event, though. I did like her bit about flying with her symptoms combined with her father's send-off antics; I guess most of the rest of the funnies were in Arabic.
I had no trouble understanding Amer Zahr, though; he didn't use a whole lot of Arabic, and used gestures or repetition to translate where he did. And his set was a riot; in retrospect, I really should not have come to his show with the wheezes, as I was soon struggling for breath. I loved his Dad jokes and the hilarious account of his trip to rural Palestine, and how he was able to bring back earlier jokes for a smashing finale dash.
