ISLAM AND HUMOUR – PART 6 – A BALTI OF LINKS

The point of this particular blog post is to prove, once and for all, that we Muslims do actually have a sense of humour, we can laugh at ourselves, and we do find funny things, erm, well, funny. If you give us a chance then you will see what a comedic web we Muslims can indeed weave.

Halal things considered, there is a monumental amount out there when it comes to Islam and humour. I have hopefully collated many of the best links below. There are links to stand up comedy that are hilarious, serious, surreal, and some to links that are brutal yet thought provoking, messing with your moral and social boundaries. As Sharon Lougher said in metro.co.uk on 16th Oct 2015: “The best comedians should make your mind do backflips.”

Here’s hoping that this blog post does in fact make your mind backflip at least once.

Yes there are loads of links, a balti full if you like, and whilst I don’t expect anyone to check out every single link (believe me, I could have added so much more), hopefully there are enough to prove Lewis Carroll correct when he said: “Everything is funny, if you can laugh at it.” And this blog post is my heart felt attempt at laughing at ‘it’.

So if anyone, and I do mean anyone, says to you that those bloody Muslims are always angry, just point them in this direction please, thanking you muchly in advance.

Anyways, enough psycho-analysing, enjoy…
