Humour is an extremely powerful tool. It acts as a shield to enable you to say things you wouldn’t normally be allowed to say and even get away with it. Dina Hashem, a stand-up comedian based in New York City shows this beautifully when she spoke about “The real problems Arab women face.” A muslim woman, Hashem puts a disclaimer that the real problems Arab women face is not about “religion or laws or Trump,” but about things like “body hair”. While talking about dating and the difficulty to find love, she does go on to talk about politics and Trump and makes very powerful statements.
