In the film farce The Infidel, British comic Omid Djalili portrays Mahmud, a devoted family man and a semi-devout Muslim—who discovers he was born a Jew. Djalili is also featured in Just Like Us, a documentary profiling stand-up comedians performing in the Middle East. During the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival in New York City, Becky Garrison, author of Jesus Died for This?, interviewed Omid to get his take on the role of the comedian in a post-9/11 era.
