An Arab American Mormon Comedian? — Aron Kader and the Axis of Evil Comedy Tour

John Dehlin Mormon

I was minding my own business, listening to Terry Gross’ Fresh Air — and what to my surprise did I discover?

There is a new comedy troup running around called the “Axis of Evil Comedy Tour“.

What’s even more interesting (to us, at least) is that one of the comedians was introduced by Ms. Gross as the “son of an Arab father and a Mormon mother.” Turns out it’s Omar Kader’s son (who is also Mormon by the way, or at least was).

This may be old news to all of you, but it’s new news to me.

When I was studying Political Science at BYU I once heard Omar Kader speak, and was greatly influenced thereby.

Anyway, check it out! It’s kinda funny. If any of ya’ll can help me w/ a contact, I’d love to add him to my interview que.
