This week in the Laugh Factory, you'll hear great sets from Maz Jobrani, Rich Vos, and Capone. Maz Jobrani says Asians are breaking stereotypes while Middle Easterners are doing just the opposite, and he explains why none of the neighborhood kids wanted to play hide and seek with Osama bin Laden. Then, Rich Vos tries to incite violence between Arabs and Jews in the audience and talks to Dom about what it's like to compete for gigs with his wife (comedian Bonnie McFarlane). Finally, Capone takes the stage and says we're at our most racist when behind the wheel - and it's time to bring fun back.
