The Axis Of Evil Comedy

Comedy special

It's finally happening. The Axis of Evil Comedy Special is airing tonight, March 10th on Comedy Central. I personally can't believe it since we've been at this thing for about 7 years. It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears (or the Middle Eastern version which would be blood, sweat and cologne) to get this thing on the air. I think when we first started I was still using Drakar Noir, now I'm on my eighteenth bottle of Armani -yes, people, that's how I tell time. Anyway, tonight we will become the first Middle Eastern/American comedy show to ever air on American television (I actually didn't research this fact, but am going with the flow because it sounds good and I‚m about 99.9% sure it's true - let's just say based on the intelligence I‚ve received there could be a strong connection between the Middle East, comedy and this being the first of its kind. Now I'm starting to sound like Dick Cheney. Doh!) >>>
Please forward this to as many people as you can since we really need to have good ratings. I know that a lot of you will either watch it or Tivo it, but I'm not sure how many Middle Easterners actually have Nielson boxes. So even if 3 million of you watch we still might get a .000001rating - which would make it seem like only 3 of you watched. But the more people who get this e-mail the more our chances of reaching Nielson families and pulling good numbers.

Show Times:
Sat, Mar. 10 @ 11:00 PM EST
Tue, Mar. 13 @ 10:00 PM EDT
Wed, Mar. 14 @ 12:00 AM EDT

Speaking of good numbers, our DVD will be in stores on April 3rd. However, you can pre-order it today on If you think you will be buying the DVD please do pre-order since it helps show our distributor that there really is a market for this brand of comedy. The DVD actually has about 30-40 more minutes of material and behind the scenes stuff than the Comedy Central Special. And it‚s priced to go, my friend - normally$14.99, but for you only $13.49 (I swear that's really how they have it on Amazon. If you don't believe me go look for yourself I think an Iranian bazaari might be Amazon's webmaster.)

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the Special and I hope you order the DVD. Comment
