Egypt’s biggest satirist on why he still considers himself an outsider

 

A few clips from an interview with Bassem Youssef, the Egyptian talk show host who is often – perhaps too often – compared to American comedian Jon Stewart.

Youssef found fame after the Egyptian uprising when he posted a series of amateur skits on YouTube which eventually attracted millions of viewers.

He is currently in the process of launching a new series of his hit show Al Bernameg – but despite the fame he has achieved across the Middle East, he remains a wonderfully humble man.
