Part of Hancher's Embracing Complexity

A self-described “social justice comedian,” Negin Farsad has been named one of the 10 Best Feminist Comedians by Paper magazine and one of the 50 Funniest Women by Huffington Post. She is also the writer, director, and star of the romantic comedy 3rd Street Blackout and the director and producer of Nerdcore Rising and The Muslims Are Coming! While promoting the latter, she sued New York’s MTA for the right to put up humorous posters about Muslims. She won. She’ll win you over, too.
