As an editorial assistant (EA) at NPR, it was my job to pitch interview ideas, book guests, research the topics, and script introductions and questions for the host. I prepped and scripted this interview for Michel Martin of NPR’s Tell Me More.
Host Intro: I’m Michel Martin and this is Tell Me More from NPR News. Now it’s time for a laugh. Three Muslims walk into a bar – oh, don’t worry, that’s not the joke. That is actually the story of three Muslim comedians featured in a new concert film, “Allah Made Me Funny.” The documentary follows the trio as they perform in clubs around the country and chronicles how they make comedy out of sometimes painful experiences living as Muslims in post-9/11 America.
