Ali and Ali series creators Camyar Chai, Guillermo
Verdecchia and Marcus Youssef turn their delightfully idiosyncratic
brand of post-identity satire to yet another brave new world, where the
Devil President Bush has been replaced by a Nobel Prize Winner whose
middle name is Hussein.
An optimistic Obama tribute, Ali and Ali 7: Hey Brother, Can You
Spare Some Hope and Change is just what the doctor ordered for the
modern day cynic. In this sequel, the Alis find themselves in trouble
with the authorities, being prosecuted under the fictional and thus
little known 9-11 era legislation called PEIU (the Permission to Expel
Immigrant Undesirables Act). Featuring homegrown sock puppets,
interactive veils, and a chorus of African-American revolutionaries, Ali
& Ali 7 turns its witty and unabashed head to Canada’s foreign
policy this time, bringing its very real Security Certificates to light.
Come early, get a FREE TASER™.
About Ali and Ali and the aXes of Evil:
“The smartest Canadian political play of the
21st century, and the funniest.” – Vancouver Province
“Ali & Ali and the
aXes of Evil must be the funniest exposition of American foreign
policy ever devised. But it isn’t just funny. It is also troubling and
poignant.” – Seattle
