Kickstarter has become an essential source of funding for a number of very important projects, and one we stumbled upon was the documentary The Muslims Are Coming!, directed by stand-up comedians Negin Farsad and Dean Obeidallah. An extremely funny trailer is now available for the film that follows their standup tour across middle America and comically tackles America’s Islamophobia, featuring interviews with Jon Stewart, Aasif Mandvi, Rachel Maddow, Janeane Garofalo, Soledad O’Brien, David Cross, Colin Quinn, and Lewis Black. The directors are using Kickstarter to get the funding necessary to complete their film, and this is certainly a project that deserves help! Support the film by pledging funds on Kickstarter and check out the full trailer below!

Will audiences laugh? Will they make a difference? Will they make it back? Rest assured, you’ve never laughed this hard at a Muslim!
