Punchlines Comedy Benefit Tour

November 13, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

“Punchlines Comedy Benefit Tour ”, is the latest comedy installment of Penny Appeal USA’s and illMuslims’ illarious collaboration.

“Punchlines Comedy Benefit Tour ‘‘, is the latest comedy installment of the Penny Appeal USA and illMuslims illarious series. The nine-city nationwide comeback tour headlines four of the funniest comics across North America: Zainab Johnson, Yasmin Elhady, Mo Kheir, and Moses The Comic. These comics represent diversity in the expression of faith, ethnicity, professional background, and identity.

The tour highlights the spectrum of Muslim experiences as they navigate the Muslim community and American society at large. Through comedy, themes of sexism/patriarchy and gender roles are challenged. From exploring the first-generation experience to appreciating the contributions of incredible Muslims, Punchlines comically celebrates life as a Muslim in 2021. Audiences will gather for timely, relevant, and just plain fun engagement.

You don’t want to miss THE comeback comedy benefit tour to end the year! Join us for part of a nine city national tour in benefit of Penny Appeal USA (501c3). 100% of the proceeds will go directly to fighting poverty through sustainable projects!
