Comedian Aasif Mandvi tells On the Media's Brooke Gladstone why he initially said no to working on The Daily Show

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Comedian and actor Aasif Mandvi is best known as The Daily Show's resident "Senior Muslim Correspondent," but he's also a skilled stage actor with credits including the critically acclaimed play "Disgraced" and the 2002 Broadway revival of "Oklahoma!"

Mandvi recently sat down in The Greene Space with On the Media host and managing editor Brooke Gladstone to talk comedy, Broadway and the challenges that South Asian actors face in finding roles that don't aim to typecast them. ("Can you put on this turban, sit on this carpet and pretend you're flying?" he quipped.)

Watch as he tells Gladstone why he initially declined an audition at The Daily Show, what his first day there was like and what Bruce Springsteen had to do with it.

Freedom of the Press in Post-Mubarak Egypt

Friday, April 08, 2011

The Egyptian revolution has transformed more than just the government. For decades, freedom of the press was out of reach for most of the Egyptian media, but the revolution has changed all that — to an extent. Some topics such as the military are still left unreported by most traditional outlets. Blogs like "Tahrir Diaries," a website run by 25-year-old writer and activist Mona Seif, are one of the few sources reporting on military trials and violations.
