Trailer Bulletin: Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World

by | January 12, 2006 | Comments

From Warner Indie and funnyman Albert Brooks comes a new comedy that looks like it could be equal parts clever, smart, and controversial. It’s called "Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World," it opens on February 10th, and you can check out the trailer right here at RT.

"The U.S. Government sends comedian Albert Brooks to India and Pakistan to find out what makes the over 300 million Muslims in the region laugh. Brooks, accompanied by two state department handlers and his trusted assistant, goes on a journey that takes him from a concert stage in New Delhi, to the Taj Mahal, to a secret location in the mountains of Pakistan."

Interestingly enough, the film was a Sony property until they took exception to the title, at which point Warner Independent Pictures swooped in and bought it.
