Find out the answers to these questions and more at this unique and edgy stand up comedy show featuring some of the best "other" voices of comedy.

If you are not Black, White or Hispanic in America, you are an "Other." "The Others" celebrates these very funny, but not often heard from, "other" voices of stand up comedy including Arab, Indian, Bangladeshi, Muslim, Asian, and Iranian.

The show is hosted by "Daily Show" correspondent Aasif Mandvi and features Dean Obeidallah (Comedy Central's "Axis of Evil" special/ABC's "The View"), Vidur Kapur (Fox TV), Maysoon Zayid (Comedy Central's "The Watch List" and upcoming PBS documentary airing May 11), Mohamed Masoud (NY Arab-American Comedy Festival), Maria Shehata (Comedy Central's "The Watch List"), Meena Dimian (NY Arab-American Comedy Festival), Rio, Fariaz Rabbani, and more.

The show is being co-produced by Arab-American comedian Dean Obeidallah and Max Brooks, an Emmy award winning writer for his work on "Saturday Night Live" and co-creator, along with Obeidallah, of Comedy Central.com's critically acclaimed Internet series "The Watch List."

"As opposed to some presidential candidates, our comedians actually know the difference between a Sunni and a Shiite," quips Obeidallah. "In this election year, we hear nightly about who white and black people are voting for, but no one talks about who "the others" are voting for. This show will answer that question in a way that will make you laugh," Obeidallah added.
