This is the only show where the comedians can answer once and for all: Is Obama really a Muslim? Who are the "brown" people voting for? Can you actually make a joke about Obama and not be considered a racist?

Who are the "Brown-Americans" voting for in the presidential election? Is Obama actually a Muslim? Will Middle Eastern-Americans even admit they are voting for Obama for fear it will hurt his chances? Can anyone even tell a joke about Obama without being considered a racist?

Find out the answers to these questions and more as these very funny "Brown-Americans" take on issues from politics to pop culture in this very unique comedy show. The show features Dean Obeidallah (Comedy Central's "Axis of Evil" special/ABC's "The View"), Vidur Kapur (Fox TV), Negin Farsad (Comedy Central's "The Watch List"/Nerdcore Rising), Nasry Malak (ABC's "20/20"), Maria Shehata (Comedy Central's "The Watch List"), Meena Dimian (NY Arab-American Comedy Festival), Anu "Raagz" Kalra, Fariaz Rabbani, and more.

"We are not afraid to tell jokes about Obama like some other comedians because we are all minorities," says comedian and show producer Dean Obeidallah. "The biggest challenge for the Middle Eastern and Muslim-American community is not telling people we like Obama too much because we are afraid it will make some other Americans not vote for him," adds Obeidallah.
