In a TV news landscape where it's impossible to know whom to trust, one man rises above the partisan hackery of the mainstream media to bring you the truth that matters: his. From the mind of Jordan Klepper, this is The Opposition.
The Arab Spring in Egypt: From a dictator to free elections, back to a dictatorship. One comedy show united the country and tested the limits of free press. This is the story of Bassem Youssef, a cardiologist turned comedian, the Jon Stewart of Egypt, and his show "The Show".Written by
President Abdelfattah Al-Sisi:

The Arab Spring's story told through the story of one man
Tickling Giant is a captivating, intense and authentic experience of what it means to rebel, about the consequences, what the stakes really are, and how the fresh wind of change is received by both the crooks and the oppressed. It is not the story of Bassem Youssef, for Bassem is only a satirist not a leader; it is a story of a voice retrieved, fought for with blood, clenched onto, and then ultimately lost. It shows, with vividness and authenticity, both the promise of the Arab spring and its eventual failure, touching on the reasons for that and showing the timeline of all of it happening in slow and inexorable progression.
It is a must-see for those who are interested in the story of the Arab Spring , for those who want to understand what it means to live in a third-world country where authoritarianism and ignorance prevail, and even for those who just want to know how fascism works and how to spot its warning signs. It's all of this and more, told in the context of Bassem Youssef's world.
As an Egyptian, I watched myself laugh, smile and cry throughout the film as I lived all of it again.
