Bassem Youssef has been called the Jon Stewart of the Arab world, but nothing beats the real thing! Except maybe those guys in the suits!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see The Daily Show host get some of his own treatment as he's treated satirically like a spy before being
interrogated interviewed about his upcoming movie!
Jon even tries to work the crowd a bit, even though Arabic isn't his first language! Or probably his second…
Luckily for him and us, the interview is in English! Mostly!

There's TWO of them!!
Bassem Youssef, often referred to as the "Jon Stewart of the Arab world" sat down with his American predecessor last night on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and boy, was it HIGHlarious!
The Egyptian television satirist brought the funny while making some poignant points about politics and being persecuted by his government. There was even a joke made about Glee!
Bassem, who was arrested earlier this month, is currently being investigated for allegedly insulting Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and the faith of Islam on his show The Program. Can you imagine something like this happening to Jon?!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) and watch these TV twins (so to speak) get into some seriouzly innnnteresting shizz!
