The Kings of Satire Unleashed on OSN

Jon Stewart meets his Egyptian counterpart Bassem Youssef in most anticipated interview exclusively on OSN Comedy HD

Dubai, UAE; April 23, 2013: Expect nothing but fireworks on OSN Comedy HD as the masters of satire from the US and the Arab world come together yet again to share their views on everything from news to current events, politics and more.

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart will host ‘Egypt's Jon Stewart,' Bassem Youssef, featuring unabashed political and social lampooning, at the same time attempting to bridge perception gaps of America and the Middle East.

Tune in for the highly anticipated interview – unedited and exclusively on OSN Comedy HD on Thursday, April 25, at 9pm KSA, with repeats on Friday, April 26 at 12:30am and 3:30pm KSA.

‘Bassem Youssef does my job in Egypt. I am an American satirist and Bassem is my hero,' Jon had observed, as Time magazine honoured the Egyptian political satirist as among ‘The 100 Most Influential People in the World' this year.

A heart surgeon turned satirist, Bassem Youssef's weekly show, Amreeka Bil Arabi, is a huge hit with viewers across the region airing exclusively on OSN Ya Hala! Shabab HD at 10pm KSA, every Wednesday. The show is a combination of a talk show, travel show, and a reality show showcasing Bassem Youssef's personal experiences exploring the ‘Arabic' side of America through comedy.

In an earlier meeting between Jon and Bassem last year, which has since gone viral, the two discussed life in Egypt and the disconnected way it is portrayed on national media. Stay tuned exclusively to OSN Comedy HD on Thursday, April 25th at 9pm KSA for what will be an unforgettable show.
