Zahra Noorbakhsh Speaks on Behalf of All Muslims

25 min

The Good Muslim, Bad Muslim host shares how Trump's election inspired her to return to prayer, what it's like to be a comedian of color in the current political climate, and how she feels about Lindsay Lohan flirting with Islam.

 

Today, we’re joined by Zahra Noorbakhsh. She’s the comedian behind such shows as All Atheists Are Muslim and Hijab and Hammer Pants. She’s also a podcast host, and a self-described pork-eating, alcohol-drinking, premarital-sex-having Muslim.
