World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth presents Maz Jobrani
Actor, comedian, and author Maz Jobrani returns to the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth to discuss his life, cultural challenges, and his experiences as a California-raised Iranian with show business ambitions.
Jobrani's latest book is his biography, I'm Not a Terrorist, But I've Played One on TV: Memoirs of a Middle Eastern Funny Man.The stand-up comedian returns to the Council following a laugh-filled Council program in 2013.
Jobrani, who can frequently be heard on the popular KERA-FM (90.1) program Wait Wait…Don't Tell Me, was born in Tehran and moved to the United States when he was six. He was raised near San Francisco and, his biography notes, dropped out of a Ph.D. program at Berkeley to go into show business.
