TICKLING GIANTS with Bassem Youssef at De Balie

April 22, 2018

On Sunday April 22nd Movies that Matter film Tickling Giants will be screened at De Balie in Amsterdam. After the film there will be a talk with the one and only Bassem Youssef.

Tickling Giants is a comical documentary about the 'Egyptian Jon Stewart', Bassem Youssef. During the Arab Spring, he trades in his career as a doctor for a life as a talk show host. Soon he has his own late night show on Egyptian television. Youssef's fortunes and misfortunes appear to be very dependent on the quirks of the leaders of the land. This makes Tickling Giants perhaps the funniest history lesson on turbulent modern Egypt.
