TED has posted a short (7-minute) video of Iranian-American comedian Maz Jobrani’s performance during the TEDxSummit in Doha that took place in April.

During his routine, Jobrani, a founding member of the Axis of Evil Comedy Tour, “takes on serious issues in the Middle East — like how many kisses to give when saying “Hi,” and what not to say on an American airplane.”

He also pokes fun at Karwa drivers and Qatar’s heat. Check it out if you have a chance, or read the transcript here.
