But, in a country where free speech is not settled law, his show becomes as controversial as it is popular. Despite increasing danger, Bassem employs comedy, not violence, to comment on hypocrisy in media, politics, and religion.

Tickling Giants follows the "Al Bernameg" team as they discover democracy is not easily won.
