Meet The Jon Stewart Of Egypt
"Inspired by the events [of the anti-Mubarak uprising], and driven partly by the state media's outrageously misleading coverage of them, [Bassem] Youssef started recording commentary in his own home, which he broadcast on YouTube. ... And he quickly became known for saying what so many Egyptians were thinking - and for being hilarious at the same time. A local network noticed and made an offer. He accepted, and left surgery for satire." CBC 03/03/13
