Content descriptions

Contents Note: Part one. A heart surgeon breaking bad -- Part two. Risky business -- Part three. The clown, the traitor, the outcast.
Summary: Bassem Youssef recounts his life and offers hysterical riffs on the hypocrisy, instability, and corruption that has long animated Egyptian politics. From the attempted cover-up of the violent clashes in Tahrir Square to the government's announcement that it had created the world's first 'AIDS cure' machine, to the conviction of officials that Youssef was a CIA operative, recruited by Jon Stewart, to bring down the country through sarcasm. There's much more, and it's all insanely true.
